5.4g, gaiwan, 100mL
I brewed this past midnight during midterms prep, so I was cranky and didn’t continue infusing. Notes are sparse and probably reflect as much.
same dry leaf smell as rest of PS order: dates and dried fruit. Something is up with their storage or my nose. Maybe one, maybe both. First time getting a surprise with the leaves: leaves had a piece of straw/hay inside. lol.
212f, 1×5s rinse
200f: wet leaves exude strong smoke. Lots of stems in this sample.
5s: unpleasantly smoky. Hint of date on the aftertaste. Sharp note.
12s: Sharp and smoky. Cooling on aftertaste with slight sweet.
