I broke off about 6-7g into my 100ml gaiwan and brewed at about 210f. I had to give two long rinses as this is from a brick and a “nugget” ripe. I bought this after having the 2009 and falling in love. It was sweet, thick and had a dark molasses finish. This one isn’t quite there yet. Its pretty good now but not as sweet and could use another year or two. I still enjoyed this tea but I have already been spoiled by the 2009 and am comparing. I am glad I bought this brick and can’t wait to visit it in the future tho I will probably break some off for a taste in just a couple of months to check on it. The 2009 is sold out except for some samples I think…which I should hoard…but this one will be just as good in a couple of years I think. Sweet, tobacco and earthy flavors and scent. My favorite.
