Prep: 60cc gaiwan, full to brim or mostly full, boiling water, flash steep x3, 10s, 10s, then chase flavor
Sessions with this tea: 7?
Taste: This is a citrus/limey dancong at heart. This silly description on YS website says eucalyptus, and when I read that initially I was like “oh ha ha it’s probably just some mentholy note that he is trying to describe.” But now it’s like “yup that tastes like eucalyptus smells.” But that note isn’t very big in the mix, is much more citrusy
Body: medium thickness, more astringency than expected from a dancong but not unpleasant. I tried to tune down my brewing parameters because I thought this note was an accident, but I can’t get rid of it, I think it’s part of the tea. Again, not unpleasant, just ate almonds feel.
Fragrance: big aroma, kinda vaguely floral/citrusy
