This tea is good, up to the usual standards of Misty Peaks. There was some bitterness in the initial infusions and a lot of sweetness. The bitterness soon disappeared, The sweetness remained. I would venture to say it had an apricot sweetness, perhaps stonefruits. This should not surprise anyone who has drank Misty Peaks tea. It is usually sweet with very little bitterness. This one is no exception.
I steeped this tea eight times in a 120ml gaiwan with 8.5g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. Didn’t give this one a rest I wanted tea. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. This tea would keep right on going if I wanted to continue. I’ve never taken a Misty Peaks tea to where I couldn’t get any more out of it but I expect this would go fifteen steeps or so. Eight steeps is quite a lot of tea with an 120ml gaiwan.
