Today I brew this tea again but this time with my new gaiwan that I bought on ebay for around 8 dollars. Ofcourse the quality isn't great but for my first gaiwan I don't need anything more, it's ideal for practising my brewingskills. This time the tea behaved totally different. The first steeps were very dry but had a very sweet aftertaste in the throat and was very full. In contrary to the taste of the soup, the leafs themselves smelled like peaches and oranges. I tried to capture these fruity tastes but it was harder than expected. This tea is so complex that I wasn't able to 'control' it. Sometimes I had these sweet, fruity flavors while another steep it was much more flowery. You will never get tired of this tea. It is very subtile but at the same time it's so extremely complex and fun to brew. And now Stéphane told me that this years harvest of DYL is even better than this tea... I cannot wait to try that one! For now, I do not believe him till I tasted it myself. I can honestly say that this tea is in my top 3.
But now it's time for me again to go study....the art of fertilization is on the menu today. Hope you readers enjoyed this blog. My apologies in advance if there are a lot of grammar/spelling mistakes, kind of rushed this blog. See you next time!
