On the second steep at 30s. This tea goes surprisingly green fast. It’s rather young. The Banzhang shows itself as some curt bitterness quickly. However, there’s a nice run of cedar-inflected sauna notes and a good “woodsy” character that’s fresh and migrates towards a lingonberry character.

Exploring the world of fine Chinese and Japanese teas, my favorites include: sheng pu’er, moderately roasted oolongs, gyokuro, shincha, and high quality, artisanal whites and greens. I don’t subscribe to any particular style of brewing, but incorporate elements from traditional techniques to brew the best tea possible. I also seek to share the joy that tea brings me with others, but am really rather introverted.
