Yesterday’s sipdown, sample courtesy of Cameron B. I made this according to brewing guidelines (205f, 6oz, 2 min), but somehow both steeps had an unpleasant bitterness to them. I don’t think it’s supposed to be bitter so I assume that I screwed this up somehow. Alas.

Hmm I don’t think I’ve ever had this one taste bitter, but I steep it more Western style with a lower leaf:water ratio.
