A good tea, but not for me. Very astringent, lots of seaweed notes. I’ve been back to this a few times but I’ve really settled into the Chinese greens and this is just too astringent for me. Not round or corny or buttery enough. It took me a few tries to ensure it’s not the tea – it’s not.

Flavors: Astringent, Seaweed

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 0 min, 15 sec 12 g 3 OZ / 100 ML

Have you tried steeping it at really low temperatures, like 158F? I saw this recommendation on the Yunomi website and it helped with another tea.

Brewing
I brew gongfu style – lotsa tea, brief brew, then into a sharing cup. It really changed tea for me after not quite “getting it” from western style brewing.
