This tea was good overall. It was sweet and smooth. It had notes of apricots or plums. I added a small amount of sugar, don’t know if this intensified the apricot flavor. There was also a very slight, slight note of sourness that appeared around steep four and persisted. Even with this it was good. I would still rate this quite highly and would try it next time at 175 degrees and see if the sour note goes away.
I brewed this six times in a 150ml gaiwan with 7g leaf and 200 degree water. I steeped it for 10 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 30 sec, and 45 sec. The spent leaves had a distinct burnt aroma to them.
