Slightly under boiling water, brief rinse (already lots of color in rinse => due to fines?),
1st steeping- roasty, a little fermented/old sock flavor, drying
2nd steeping- rich sweetness, earthy, weird sock aftertaste but less defined
3rd steeping- color mellower, nice thickness body, sweet note similar to golden raisin
4th steeping- lot longer steep time 10-15s, distinct oolong scent, gorgeous taste, starting to hit its stride: nice, syrupy and smooth, wonderful aftertaste
5th steeping- 25-30s, lots of stirring with lid, similar to last one but a bit weaker and watery, roasted barley flavor, very smooth and tasty, great mouthfeel
6th steeping- took 1hr break; 45-50s steep, leaves on bottom brought to top, weaker but syrupy, roasted nutty, spices finish
7th steeping- less water, longer steep time 1:20, very syrupy sweet and nutty
8th steeping- 2:15 min, enjoyed it while it lasted, watery and muted, still syrupy tho
