My second go at this oolong.

This time i tried 9g for my 180ml kyusu.
Added boiling water for 1:30.

The result was interesting.
First i notice som viscosity, pretty smooth.
Then i notice a strong flavor of cinnamon that soon turns to astringency and a bit bitter aftertaste.

Usually in japanese blacks with little astringency i tend to try using quite alot of leaf to bring out the flavor. 8-10g / 180ml. But for this tea it was slightly to much. Next time i either use 7-8g leaf or lover time to 1:15.

Second infusion for 1min / boiling. A bit to short it seems. Cinnamon still there but a bit more fruity and much lighter then the first cup.

Boiling 1 min, 30 sec
