90mL shiboridashi, preheated, with 3.1 grams of tea, delicate intact leaves, with sweet delicate scent
160°F/71°C, 90 seconds
Peaches and honey, flowers and fruit, delicious.
160°F/71°C, 2 minutes
Peaches receding, still honey, fruity, flowers, and delicious
180°F/82°C, 2 minutes
Vegetal grassiness to the fore now, still some floral overtones, fruit/peach essence gone now
186°F/86°C, 3 minutes
Floral, sweet, vegetal, pleasant, but I think the leaves are mostly done now.
This is a lovely tea, very reminiscent of Bai Mu Dan, and should be delicious iced. I’m going to prepare a cup of that to drink tonight—will update when I do.
