Another tea from derk; again used remaining 4 grams in my 125 ml gaiwan and here we go. No rinse, no smelling to dry leaf, just boiling water in thermos and steeping.
1st steep, 10 seconds
Very roasty in aroma, as well mineral. But in taste quite mild and round with both notes just right, thick and mineral note is lingering.
2nd steep, 5 seconds
Similar level of roastiness, but with sweet aftertaste, instead of mineral notes. A nice steep :)
3rd steep, 15 seconds
Now the mineral notes prevailed, still very thick liquor.
4th steep, about 7 seconds
Short steep, because I spilled half of gaiwan accidentaly. Not a bad steep though, mineral one again.
5th steep, 30 seconds
Based on the colour, the tea is past its best. The taste complies too, it’s much weaker and rather mineral.
6th steep, 60 seconds
Sweet mineral taste; but without any long aftertaste. Pretty much boring honestly.
