Had two steepings of this tonight.
My kitchen scale isn’t reading right so I’m not sure how many grams I used to steep this – enough so that it was strong but it still seemed a bit off somehow. Those apricot notes showed up only intermittently at different points in the sip, and then the astringence would take over.
The second steep was weaker but still good – just no apricot notes and a thinner mouthfeel. It was good, just not memorable.
In fact, this whole drinking experience tonight was like that – nothing really memorable.
Oh well, there’s always next time!
