No matter what I did, I couldn’t get the bitterness out of the brew.. I steeped it the same parameters as the previous dancong, but it always had a bitter finish even when I lowered the water temperature or had shorter steeps. Not sure what I did wrong – maybe I need a dancong expert :P
Still, woodsy notes with a hint of sweetness until the bitterness hits at the end. Steeped gongfu style.

Learning more about tea every day.

Likes: Greens, whites, oolongs, blacks, and herbals! Just depends on the mood :)
Dislikes: Coconut, melon, chocolate, peach, cherry

I also collect antique teaware (Chinese and Japanese).

I’d love to try new types, varieties, etc. I’m still exploring pu-erh to make a complete decision whether to keep trying it or just count it as a loss.

I’d love to trade with anyone who likes something that I might have! I just have to get everything added to my cupboard first :)
