First steep; 5 seconds: Little sweet, but mostly savory vegetal. Mild astringency.
Second steep; 7 seconds: I under steeped, but not bad. Mineral spice and more subdued savory green. Maybe faint floral. Some astringency, but pleasant.
Third Steep; 12 seconds: Smooth, savory, and a little grassy. Creamy mouth feel developing.
Fourth Steep; 17 seconds: Less savory, more sweet with some grassy flavors. Maybe vague honey notes.
Forgot to log the rest of my notes for this one. This wasn’t bad, and it’s from 2015, but it basically tasted like a green tea mostly. I think I might brew this one western style as said on Verdant. The other times I brewed it like that I got better flavors.
