T1137 39.99/lb

a mao feng (from Feng Huang Shan, Guangdong Province … i think)

1st infusion 194F, 3min

tea smell: present, greenish vegetal
aspect: green leaf in water looks good, length .75inch
flavor: 4/7 green vegetal, astringency when present even when strong is clear green vegetal (pleasant to me unlike black tea astringency.)

2nd, subsequent steeps

flavor: starts to get fruity: apricot, yum! very pleasant clear taste, low astringency.

infusion in cold water does not come out too well. 1st and 2nd are ok but subsequent fail to extract flavor out of the leaf.
