Another tea from derk; again used remaining 4 grams in my 125 ml gaiwan and here we go. No rinse, no smelling to dry leaf, just boiling water in thermos and steeping.

1st steep, 10 seconds
Very roasty in aroma, as well mineral. But in taste quite mild and round with both notes just right, thick and mineral note is lingering.
2nd steep, 5 seconds
Similar level of roastiness, but with sweet aftertaste, instead of mineral notes. A nice steep :)
3rd steep, 15 seconds
Now the mineral notes prevailed, still very thick liquor.
4th steep, about 7 seconds
Short steep, because I spilled half of gaiwan accidentaly. Not a bad steep though, mineral one again.
5th steep, 30 seconds
Based on the colour, the tea is past its best. The taste complies too, it’s much weaker and rather mineral.
6th steep, 60 seconds
Sweet mineral taste; but without any long aftertaste. Pretty much boring honestly.

Song pairing:

In the news here: I know, restrictions are necessary, but industry is still going on… and it’s known most people get sick there.

Hah, forgot to write in the note… sipdown 60!


Wow! Masks with nano filters required…so many masks I see here are not worn properly and many are just a scarf around the face. They are trying to open things up here now and we passed by a high school football game in a small town today and it was so so strange to see people gathered. It was nit a big crowd, though, and I expect the people were sitting in “pods”. Sounds like they are taking it seriously where you are.

All the best, and prayers!

Wow. That is harsh. Cases are dropping here so people are getting careless. Trying to get vaccinated in this city is an exercise in absurdity. Stay safe, Martin.

ashmanra: Unfortunately, it’s the case here too. People just wear it as a scarf, as you wrote. It is better with the respirators though now, but still the situation is bad here. And currently, there is no exception for going to another city to pick up technical books in university library. I think I will not obey the rules word-by-word and I will try to explain. And well, I have friends elsewhere than my region. Hard to live in this situation. And what grinds my gears the most… industry is still going on. Testing there won’t be mandatory, because state can’t get enough tests? But almost all small businesses are closed down, you can’t buy new shoes or clothes, because “it’s dangerous”.

White Antlers: Yes, it’s harsh. But probably somehow necessary. I am trying to get over it and think it’s the best. It’s hard, see reply to ashmanra above :( — getting vaccinatation here is hard here as well. If only I could register my grandma!
