(5g in 5 oz) Steeps: 10 sec, 30, 40, 120.
Confused – I can’t get past the roasted-to-the-point-of-burnt taste. Unpleasant still after a few steeps, don’t want to try any further.

Learning to brew gongfu style in my first gaiwan made me aware that not only is there an amazing array of teas out there to try, but each tea has the potential to have a great variety of flavors revealed by different preparations. Whenever possible, I like to brew each tea I try a few ways: gongfu, western, cold brewed/iced. I’ve enjoyed seeing how these treatments change any given tea.
