I got in my order from Seven Cups on Friday so will be logging some of those soon I hope, but this Tie Guan Yin is a good one. I followed the directions recommended by SC and did water right off the boil for 2 minutes in my Yixing which has a rather large capacity (~16 ounces) so i used a full tablespoon of dry leaves. Boy did the leaf smell good when I opened up the bag (which by the way was a resealable container – a huge plus for me right now in the middle of a tea-buying binge).

The brew is lighter than other TGYs I have tried, but very aromatic. Strongly floral scent like vanilla, mixed with what I think is jasmine and very golden-yellow, clear liquor. Second infusion smells even stronger – I let it steep for 45 seconds more. Same color and seems like even stronger bouquet of flowers smells. Just from my first two steeps I can say this is a winner and a re-order in cupboard. Glad I got the 50 gram bag rather than a sample. Going to stop writing and keep steeping.

I only got 3 steeps out of it. I suspect this is because I brew my steeps so long. The first was 2 minutes, second almost 3, and the last was 4 minutes, but the last was noticeably weaker and I took that as my queue to stop.
