This evening I’m experimenting with using teacups as a mini Gaiwan with one of my Dancong that I have taken through 22 steeps before. I used 3g/65ml and so far it’s been a success. Steeped this way It recaptures the whiskey liqueur mixed with light peach notes I love in my other Osmanthus Dancong. This one also has cream and cocoa notes. It is more heavily roasted than my other Dancong of this type.
I’ve steeped this tea a few times. The first time I had bitter orange and honey, a second time was closer tonight and another time when I used less leaf it was heavily perfumed and floral. Altogether, I am having fun playing with this tea I got off aliexpress. https://instagram.com/p/37onvBGK-s/
