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 is sweet and roasty, similar to the Tie Luo Han by Norbu. I can’t describe all the notes, it’s fairly complex. Seems quite caffeinated too – I’m definitely amped up. Second infusion seems to have a lighter taste. But now I’m so caffeinated that I probably shouldn’t drink any more.
