The leaf awakens nicely with short steeps @ 180 F. Steeps begin @20 second steeps, thus allowing each subtle change in liquor character to be experienced. Colour is deep golden, almost honey like with a highly crystal reflective surface. Low dust, bright in character.

Enjoyable steeps, used small Gaiwan to allow clear observation as the remarkable leaves awakened. Flavour held throughout 6 to 7 steeps, slightly increasing time to keep golden colour.

Observation of leaves following final steep, revealed beautiful two leaf and a bud sections. Each whole and perfect, not crumbled or over processed.
