I drink this Western but tonight I wanted to try it out with a gongfu session.

Disclaimer: This is only my second batch chrysanthemum buds/flowers to ever drink. But I feel positive about this. Pleasant. Clean. Relaxing.

While it is only a first impression, I’d say this tea is not very good. It started out with a taste of wet wood. It then got sour for several infusions, It got a little better in later infusions. There were some sweet notes but not many. There was a lot of fermentation flavor in the early steeps.

I brewed this eight times in a 170ml teapot with 9.1g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec.

Very dark and earthy flavor. Short to medium finish that is very, very top of the back of the throat mostly.

Second steep is really sharp almost black. Also a rich brown, coffee-like almost. Thick mouthfeel, yep almost black.

A weird bit of not really there sweetness.

It puts me in mind of a light espresso, really…
