This one I really didn’t like much. It started out ok but weak from the tight compression. Then after several steeps it developed a strong bitterness that never really let go. It also developed notes of leather and tobacco. It just had an unpleasant taste to it in the end.
I steeped this tea twelve times in a 120ml gaiwan with one coin or 10.9g leaf and boiling water. I gave it a 10 second rinse. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, 1 min, 1.5 min, and 2 min. The only thing good about this tea was it was cheap.
Flavors: Bitter, Leather, Tobacco
