I brewed 2.5-3g of leaf western style in about a 250ish ml cup with a basket strainer for 3min at 195f. Blacks don’t seem to give as many infusions so setting up the tea tray and gongfu set seems a bit overkill for only a couple of good infusions but has been known to happen on occasion especially with a new tea. (Gotta get that aroma kicked up!) I really like this tea and am a fan of “Golden Monkey” in general. I like the bread-like malty and slight roasted flavors and even the bit of sweetness (albeit very mild) on the back end. Has a nice wake me up kick as well. I’m not sure if its time to get the mineral build up out of my electric tea kettle or its the tea but I do detect a bit of slight mineral/yancha rockiness in the aftertaste towards the end of the cup. Over all its a good “Golden Monkey” and I would say grab some….Scott has it cheap!
