I brewed this in the Gaiwan while yesterdays 2004 Yongming still occupys my Yixing. The first steep was relatively uneventful. I know most people rinse. I do not. The second steep is where I am finding where this tea shines. I allowed it to steep a bit longer than usual and the results are perfect. The flavor is complex and very inviting. The vital energy I am getting from this tea is amazing. A warm feeling is creeping up on me. As I continue in my journey the cedar-evergreen notes are fading to a fruitier complexity which is still intoxicating. A superb tea.

I am an avid surfer, gardener, golfer and freespirit. I have been a tea drinker forever. Tea has provided me with contentment. I love White, Oolong, Green, Black and Pu’er. I do not care for flavored tea and nor will I comment on it.
