And now a tea I am drinking while writing. That works best.
I did 10 seconds rinse, then let leaves absorb the humidity for 10-15 minutes and then started with 10 seconds long steep.
1st steep, 10 seconds
What a nice mounthfeel. Smooth, almost velvety, with taste of stonefruits, again as I mentioned before, peaches and apricots. No bitterness, little astringency
2nd steep, 20 seconds
Brew is light green, in taste more astringency; but still very smooth. Taste more green, bit hay.
3rd steep, 30 seconds
Astringency withdrew, smooth taste. Again some fruits appear, bit woody. Tends to sween notes a bit.
4th steep, 40 seconds
Hmm, stonefruits! Maybe little bit citrusy.
5th steep, 50 seconds
Again astringency creeps a bit. Indeed citrusy with hints of floral notes.
And I will say goodbye to this tasting note as I don’t like long ones, but it keeps giving. Easydrinking sheng for simple and unexperienced puerh tea drinkers as I am. It is though very nice to drink puerh after long time. Or actually any tea in gaiwan.
Flavors: Apricot, Astringent, Citrus Zest, Hay, Peach, Stonefruits
