I have sample from Donatzsky. And this one I have not tried yet. Thank you!

I woke up today with feel like a puerh. It does not happen much often recently. So, I checked my cupboard (virtual as well real one) and decided for this one. 4 grams / 85 ml gaiwan, boiling water in thermos. Home alone. Tea was rather loose thank some kind of chunk.

1st steep was 15 seconds long. I notice it was really bitter in aroma with notes of stonefruits. In taste it is much better though, stonefruits dominate with sweet hay, bit of astringency.

2nd steep, 30 seconds.
It is very similar to first one. Cold it is completely weird. Very dry.

3rd, 45 s.
Vegetal notes, but astringency gone. Good, bit too drying for me.

4th, one minute.
Bit of white grapes, dry, but good.

I did not made another steeps, as I had to go. But I guess they would be very similar.
