Decided to follow up lunch with rhinkle with this one. The sample smells pretty sweet and fruity. 7g into the gaiwan, quick rinse, rest and steep. This one starts out light in color and gentle in flavor, with a hint of youthful bitterness. Well-balanced sweetness, florals and fresh wood shavings emerge.
I haven’t had enough time to completely spend these leaves today, so I’ll revisit this tomorrow. So far, the flavor, mouthfeel and amount of bitterness have remained pretty consistent.
