I broke my gaiwan lid. Myself. Sad. But it chipped quite clearly (smoothly, dunno correct word). Hopefully I can fix it. Somehow.

Used 3 grams for my 85 ml gaiwan. Maybe bit weak. But it is almost 9 pm.
First steep 15 seconds long pours dark bronze, clear and wonderful. I notice something like forest honey. Bit of malt. Bit citrusy? Wet wood? Walnut? (trying to smell what derk noticed)
I think bit of everything is there.
Oh, taste! This is unexpected like mollasses (never had it). But it is sweet and sticky. Maybe bit malty.

2nd is bit longer (+5 seconds max)
Citrusy notes are bit stronger.

3rd…
long, I forgot about it a bit.
Bit bitter, but citrusy!

Good tea! Thank you derk!
