5 second rinse, hottish (not boiling water)
Steep 1: 1 minute steep, 1.5 tsp leaves with 50 mL hottish (not boiling water)
Mild flavour, nice aroma. Smells like a solid Chinese oolong. Slightly sweet and floral.
Steep 2: 2 minutes, 50 mL water
Much more flavourful. Leaves are unravelling. Lots of tannins. Brew smells a little bit like pan fried tea or tobacco smoke.
Steep 2: 1 minute, 50 mL water
Getting a bit bitter. Lots of tannins. No longer floral, now it is quite nutty and toasty. Smells very fragrant.
Flavors: Floral, Nutty, Tannin, Tea, Toasty
