Yixing teapot. Tea poured into ceramic balancing pot when brewed.
Washed at boiling.
1st infusion (2 mins at 90C)
Beautiful meadow-like aroma but tasted overbrewed. Sharp tannins on the finish.
2nd infusion (3 mins at 90C)
Flattened out the tannins but also erased the flavour. Hints of vegetal notes with an underlay of nuttiness.
3rd infusion (10 mins at 75C)
I think this was coloured water.
I’m sorry, I wanted to like this but I can’t get the brew right and I’ve certainly had better oolongs.
Flavors: Nutty, Vegetal
