Preheated gaiwan 85 ml, boiling water in thermos. 4 grams. Rather loose than packed piece of tea. From Donatzsky.
Aroma of flowers hit my nose even I have not used any water yet. Seems it will be lovely.
When added water to do quick rinse (10 seconds) it became even more floral with notes of baked sweets. The rinse in taste is very sweet, floral and full of taste. In last sips bit of black tea taste.
The brew is really light in colour. Light green with yellow notes.
1st brew is about 12-13 seconds long, very floral in aroma as well in taste. Little fruity notes appear.

It turns out to bit vegetal, floral and not much fruity. Or maybe more stone fruits and less vegetal? My tastebuds are confused. Anyway really good and I start to feel cha qi – if it is that.

Scent of wet leaf is cherry wood. Taste of tea is much more fruitier than previous one. Tasty. Sweet. No bitterness or astringency.

Smooth floral tea. Maybe almost gone. It is nice, but bit bland. Not a long mouthfeel.
