Tight compression of tea. That is a definition of this one.
I managed to get 5 grams for my gaiwan, made quite a long rinse (30+ seconds).
Now, first steep, about 20 seconds I think. Stonefruits, honey… tea on me. I spilled (cold already) on me.
Second one is longer by 10 seconds.
Taste gone stronger, bit more astringency. Bamboo is the strongest taste I think.
Third steep, again 30 seconds.
Tea broke completely, so finally I am getting sweet notes. But in background there are still some bitter notes.
Oh well, how long? 30+ seconds, maybe close to 1 minute! I forgot!
But tea is still good. It does not turned awfully bitter, rather the stone fruit flavours turned out stronger.
And few more steeps, I stopped making any more notes. I am too lazy now. It is almost 10pm.
Lindt Crémant 49% chocolate bar with Bourbon Vanilla. Too delicious to take just one bit.
