Today I tried something a little different for this tea, in order to see if it makes me like it more. Also, I didn’t want to spend much time on the session. That’s why, I only used about 2.5g in a 100ml gaiwan filled to about 2/3 each time. On top of that, I also broke the dry leaves to about 1/5 of their original size, so that the extraction is faster.
The resulting tea is less pungent and lighter bodied. However, the taste is more robust and in fact manifests its more subtle aspects better. I am happy with how it turned out and I will continue experimenting with this tea further in the future.
