From Wild Tea Qi

Ancient Gan Tong is grow in a little bit lower position which around 5000-6000+ fee high on Wu Liang Mountain where most of the year the sun is shining, the tea reflects this in the taste. It is then dried and stored loosely as to not break the short to medium size relatively dark and twisted leaves. The liquor is a light, golden green with a medium body, notes of toasted rice and wildflowers. One cup can be brewed up to 5-6 times.

I brewed this at 180 degrees using short intervals. It smelled very roasty, like a genmaicha. The best steeps were between 2 and 3 minutes. Shorter steeps didn’t have enough flavor, and longer steeps had a sharp taste I didn’t like. But in the goldilocks range, the tea had a pleasant aroma and flavor. I didn’t taste much past the roasty rice notes, but I’m into that so it was fine with me!
