10 second rinse
30 second steep
45 second steep
brewed in oolong seasoned yixing teapot
the first steep was very mild, but tasty. it was difficult to discern notes that described the experience as a whole. words came to me, but i felt like they were more subtle undertones and not representative of the tea as a whole. i found the broth to be round and full and mellow. the first steep was very easy to drink and i was excited to get more depth in the next one.
the second steep was a rich golden. on the nose i could sense vibrant, ripe fruit notes. this one’s a bit hard to put into words, but i quite enjoyed it
for the second steep,
