1.25 tsp for 250mL water 100C, steeped 4 minutes 30 seconds, drunk bare.
Dry leaf: lots of long and wiry brown leaves, small dark copper leaves, a few flecks of dull green. Aroma: toast , earth.
Wet leaf: brown, bright copper, dark green. Aroma: Ceylon copper.
Liquor: very dark reddish brown.
A touch bitter, but I did oversteep — I got interrupted in my timing. That said, this is a strong and heavier-bodied tea. The bitterness seems to be from the Keemun, as there’s a touch of smoke to it. The Yunnan is malty and sweet, and the Ceylon gives brightness and heft. Potent and delicious.
