1997 Imperial Shou
This loose-style offering yields a smooth, richly sweet character. It begins with significant earthy overtones of chocolate and cinnamon which mellow and become exceptionally sweet after several infusions. Pairs well with heavier foods. Perfect for dim sum.
Time: 20 sec. rinse, flash rinse, then 20+ sec. infusion (multiple infusions)
Temp: 195°–205° Amount: 1 tbs / 5 oz. water
*using slightly cooler water brings out the natural sweetness
