2 Tasting Notes


Have 25g worth of a sample that I just got around to breaking into. WHY DID I WAIT??

5g in 70ml gaiwan. Water right off boil. Flash steepings x6-7 each friggn delish both in mouth feel and interesting in taste change. Picking up notes of light woods faintly smoked, indistinct fruits. Not Bitter but somewhat astringent making me want more after each cup.

Im no ace at tacking down notes so take mine with a grain but I was very pleased with the first session of this sample.

Qi… yep there in spades too. loopy stoopid lookin at my toes like a stoner askin “What r those?” And Im not usually one to mention the feels. Pretty stoked to have received this little stash and would be very happy to have a cake or two in my stash.

How do I get bings past the spouse without getting more storage vessels?

This has become my go to workplace infuser. I picked it up by chance at a Thrift shop (brand new) and it’s very convenient. Control of steep time is exact and watching the leaves unfurl is very pleasant. I’m able to store leaves overnight and able to brew multiple steeps at a time. Clean up is simple.

At this point I see no problem with construction. Everything fits neatly together and feels substantial. BPA free plastic does not retain odor, or stain and does not leech toxins.

Very pleased with this accidental teaware find!
