I pulled this from the “pumidor” to check it’s progress.
I got 10 grams out and gave a quick rinse to wake it up. Brewed in the easy gaiwan, the color looks a bit darker than the first time. The color really came after the second steep. The bitterness in this is pretty strong. It kind of overwhelms the palate a bit and goes a bit to the slightly sweet after some time. This one is still growing and needs more time to mellow out a bit.
A re-taste in a year hopefully will show a bit more progress.

Hang in there mr. M, I just drank something from your pumidor on Sunday that by comparison topped three other storages that day.

mrmopar

Yeah this one hasn’t had a year in there yet. I can normally see the changes after about a year.

Your Gaiwan is 300ml??

Cwyn

Yeah he’s a REAL tea drunk. As opposed to all the pretenders out there.

mrmopar

Nah my gaiwan with 3 brews equals about 10 oz. I normally do 3 brews to my western “tea drunk” cup! I need a big shot of it when I drink it.

Haveteawilltravel

okay so 100ml Gaiwan xD So you mix the steepings?

mrmopar

Yep, mix all 3 into one cup.

Haveteawilltravel

huh, never heard of that before :)
