Note: this information is taken directly from the review on my blog.

I started off with three 5 sec rinses. The fourth steep was 30 secs long in 195F water. The fifth steep was also 30 secs but in 200F water. The liquor was flavorful. I detected sweet notes of dried fruit and dry notes of conifer sap and juniper needles. My cup was aromatic even after I had drunk all the tea. The same experience for the sixth and seventh steep. The eighth steep was 45 secs long in 200F water. Stone fruit emerged alongside dried fruit in the eighth steep. There was a mineral finish with a touch of astringency like an unripe hachiya persimmon. The ninth infusion at 1 min in 200F water yielded a milder, peach-colored liquor. The tenth and final steep was very similar.
