I think I need to air this out and give it another shot, perhaps with less leaf. I had just found it still-sealed in the back of my tea cupboard (!). I did 4.9g in a 60mL gaiwan, one rinse, then short (1-5sec) steeps. The inside of the gaiwan lid smells interesting and good! The tea itself just tastes fresh-woody and is pretty astringent. Maybe with some air it’ll be better.
