So this is the first of my samples from Crimson Lotus, just trying a few things out.
6g, 100ml gaiwan, 212F
Rinse- citrus, bright
Started off soft and green with just the edge of bitter, bright and lemon. Middle moved to bittersweet, mouthcoating. I really felt the qi in these steeps – floatly and a lot of energy in my jaw.
Once I was past the flash steeps, sweet and green. A little bit drying, sweet, smooth. I lost time here.
Sweet, citrus and bittersweet continued until the end.
I like this one, probably better with a little more age though.
Flavors: Bitter, Citrus, Green, Lemon, Smooth, Sweet
