This tea is pretty good. The first thing I noticed was a sweet note that I identified with white grapes but not as sweet. A little bitterness crept in around the third steep. There was a little bit of astringency too. Overall I really liked this tea. I believe it is a blend but I’m not entirely sure. It is a nice young sheng full of sweet notes. There was a mild qi to this tea. Not massive but there. I think this might age into something nice.
I steeped this eight times in a 120mml gaiwan with 8.2g leaf and 190 degree water. I gave it a 10 second rinse and a 10 minute rest. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, and 30 sec. The leaves were not done at eight steeps. I’m sure I could have gotten four or five more steeps out of them but I want to go on to something else.
