|The sober setup for today|
The tea looks dark green with some more dark green and black spots. I think they might be slightly roasted but I'm too sure of that because I've never had a real roasted oolong before. (Except for an aged oolong). When I quickly rinsed the tea and took a smell of the leaves they secreted such a nice odor of sweet, flowery parfum and also this hint of sour-sweet sauce!
|Nice, dark brew|
The 4th steep took more than 2 minutes and was more bitter and nutty, not bad but not good either. I can feel it's losing some of it's potential already though the fifth steep was very surprising. Instead of a bitter liquor it turned into a very pure, subtile and refreshing sournesswith some hints of raspberries. The sixth and last steep which took about 30min. was quite simular to the fith one but had a much higher acidity which was a perfect thirstquincher.
