This will be my first attempt at brewing gong-fu style. Will use 95 degree water with 30 second steeps, throwing out the first 10 second steep. Used my unglazed clay pot and cups, and 5g of the tea. First infusion: It is surprisingly sweet and light (in taste, not in color) with a subtle taste that reminds me of bamboo. Clean and pleasant. Second infusion: Very very similar to the first, but with a slightly deeper taste (I think). The third infusion is similar, but a little more earthy – once again, slightly more depth.
