I tend to drink Longjing brewed western or grandpa style usually. This time I brewed it in a tea infuser bottle that my family got me for Father’s Day. I used 3 grams of leaves to 175ml of filtered tap water at 190 degrees F and got 4 solid infusions at 2, 3, 4, and 5 minutes.
Just an incredible aroma on this one. A rich, full aroma of buttery steamed spinach with roasted chestnuts filled my space. That nuttiness was strong in the cup and was the main attraction for me. A broth with the best of all worlds, savory but sweet, and slightly bitter, vegetal and nutty. I could drink this tea every day and be happy.
