I’m doing this with multiple steeps with hot water and 3-6 second steeps in my beautiful little frog yixing teapot (after rinsing the tea) according to Verdant tea’s instructions. The first steep has a wonderfully floral nose but the taste itself is very light. The liquor is a shimmery golden straw color. The leaves open up into large beautiful leaves.

Second steep: The floral bouquet is considerably muted now. The taste is stronger with a slight salted artichoke flavor mixed with the flowers and a slight walnut sensation at the back of my tongue. Nice.

Third steep: A hint of walnuts and butter pastry.

Fourth steep: The surprising scent of freshly shampoo’d hair. The flavor has retreated a bit and is back to light floral.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
