Today, started with this one hotter, 170 degrees, and very short infusions: it was more aromatic, fruitier, floral, fantastic through the first three infusions of 20-30 seconds apiece. Getting bolder, set for 185 degrees for the fourth: still mmmmmm. Not even a hint of bitter. Starting cooler seems like a good idea, but the heat kept it going nicely for several more infusions, before sweet water was reached about the 7th or 8th infusion.

I’ve been drinking tea for 30 years, but only bought 2 brands of 2 different teas for most of that time. It took me almost 30 years to discover sencha, puerh, and green oolongs. Now I am making up for lost time.

I try to log most of my teas at least once, but then get lazy and stop recording, so # times logged should not be considered as a marker of how much a particular tea is drunk or enjoyed.
