6.24 grams 90ml glass gaiwan
8 second rinse
First steep noticed a metallic note but I admit I didn’t warm my teaware up prior to adding the leaf.
Everything but the metallic note was good. Woody, earthy, subtle musty in a pleasant way.
Noticed more of a balanced flavor of wood earth with a dry sweetness quality around the 4th steep on.
Had a very gentle chaqi that uplifted me and warmed me up as well. Exactly what I was after this morning.
It’s a fairly complex tea but has a bit of fermentation flavor left yet. It faded quick but those sensitive to that be warned.
I think for the price it’s a wonderful tea to age. I might try to drink this one more often.
I have a feeling out of my seasoned yixing it will taste more rounded.
Overall I am satisfied with this tea.
