Decided to brew this tea in more of a western style to see how the flavors changed. Kept the water temp the same, but brew for 3min. instead of the 5sec. infusions. The nose is basically the same a the dry leaf nose. Flavor is more vegital and sweet with good heavy mouthfeel. I pick up flavors of green bean, raisin, and star fruit.
The downfall is you don’t get to see the tea evolve over steepings in nose and flavor. Those light subtle flavors you get with less time are muted by other stronger flavors. I think I will make sure I’m home and have time to make this with multiple steepings vs. one longer to take on the go.
