Ashmanra’s sipdown challenge – February 2023 Tea #4 -A tea swap tea or gifted tea
I wanted to finish these leaves here from Kawaii433 before they got any older. The last time I used only a teaspoon and a teaspoon just didn’t seem like enough at the time. Today I used at least two teaspoons for a big mug. The flavor was better! These long leaves taste almost like a Laoshan green, just not as strong. Nutty, creamed corn, a bit vegetal, a bit like spring flowers somehow. Definitely better with more leaves. Not astringent or overdone at all.
Steep #1 // 2+ teaspoons for a big mug // 30 minutes after boiling // 1-2 minute steep
Steep #2 // 25 minutes after boiling // 2-3 minute steep
