Upped the gram used this time around getting to the bottom of my bag at this point in an effort to use up all my green(oolong) tea before this year harvest. Using about 7g in my 100 mL gaiwan and this time around it got even more intense. Before when I was following the steeping time rishi suggested it was always a bit light and vicious, now when I quit being so frugal I really got what this tea is all about. The body is heavy still on the lighter side but it was super watery before, also the subtle nuances before more pronounced. It is smooth like a jade and super floral but sweet floral instead of bitter floral like rose petals or jasmine can get.

I only got about two steepings in before I had to stop I am super tea drunk lol, calm and floating type feeling even though I woke up fairly stressed due to personal things. Who needs prozac when we have Gao Shan Cha, I can’t drink anymore at the moment especially since I have a busy day but it’s too good to toss….. Maybe cold brew the rest? lets see what happens.

I try to refrain from numerically rating a tea until I have tried brewing at least an oz of it with various different parameters and vessels (hotter/colder water, longer/shorter times, yixing/gaiwan etc)
