I broke my gaiwan lid. Myself. Sad. But it chipped quite clearly (smoothly, dunno correct word). Hopefully I can fix it. Somehow.

Used 3 grams for my 85 ml gaiwan. Maybe bit weak. But it is almost 9 pm.
First steep 15 seconds long pours dark bronze, clear and wonderful. I notice something like forest honey. Bit of malt. Bit citrusy? Wet wood? Walnut? (trying to smell what derk noticed)
I think bit of everything is there.
Oh, taste! This is unexpected like mollasses (never had it). But it is sweet and sticky. Maybe bit malty.

2nd is bit longer (+5 seconds max)
Citrusy notes are bit stronger.

long, I forgot about it a bit.
Bit bitter, but citrusy!

Good tea! Thank you derk!

I am drinking almost everything. Tea bag collector who moved to wonderful world of loose leaf.

Trying to rate differently tea bags and loose leaf as tea bags have usually worse quality.

Photographer now and then. Postcrossing and geocaching member. Very curious person. Logistics student (should finish in June 2021).

Buried in tea right now. Is in my cupboard (trying to be updated) which sparkled your interest? Write me, I would gladly share with you. But I don’t want anything in return now :)
