First tea in the gaiwan. It is strange to use a mere 4 ounces of water and then that amount doesn’t fit in the cup! I like that using this piece of brewing equipment makes me slow down and appreciate the tea. On the flip side, I am quickly realizing that I like to drink a lot more tea at a time!
The first steep was 2 minutes and tasty.
The second steep was 3 minutes and had more astringency.
I didn’t get farther than that because I forgot I had to leave to get to a car appointment!
