I didn’t bother measuring; just covered the bottom of 60ml gaiwan and went from there. Ripe plums and strawberries on the nose meld with bittersweet dark chocolate on the tongue. Fills the mouth and finishes long. No astringency; instead produces a slight salivatory effect. Well processed and medium roasted, flavors harmonize on the palate. Massive, pleasingly plump leaves after steeps six or seven.

To paraphrase a half-remembered comment I read once on someone’s blog post:

“With all the tea I drink I don’t know where I am most of the time.”

Wuyishan and High Mountain oolongs. Matcha and aged whites. Sheng and shou. Also, bubble tea and rose tisane. Nothing ‘dank.’

My tea brewing methods are flighty and deeply idiosyncratic.
