Thank you Angel for this free sample. Sorry it took me so long to get to it. This was an excellent tea. It started off somewhat bitter. This lasted about four steeps or so. Then it developed a nice sweet note to it. I am not sure if I should say apricots or stonefruits but it was good. Despite being ten years old it had yet to develop any aged flavors, good or bad. It had no storage tastes at all. It was very tasty. This is definitely one I would consider buying the next time I order with Teavivre.
I steeped 7.3g leaf in a 120ml gaiwan with 7.3g leaf. I steeped it twelve times. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. There were definitely a few more steeps left but I figure I’ve had enough caffeine for today.
