Steeping it grampa style in a 40 oz hydroflask. 8g is a good size for it. This is going to become a library tea for those long study sessions.

Edited to add: after several hours of grampa-style steeping, I found that the tuo cha hadn’t even fully opened up. there’s still a clump of leaf in the bottom of the flask! Moar steeping tomorrrow!

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 45 sec

about the third steeping, I encountered a lovely huigan sweetness in the back of the throat. I love this tea!
