dont know what this is, from the looks might be a bi luo chun.

This is the “majestic” ‘Qing Shan Lu Shui’ “qing shan lv shui” (青山绿水) Ku Ding tea (cha).

wet leaf: looks like small tender young top leaf and buds.

liquor photo: L is 3 minute, R is after the infusion liquor was left a couple hours. (thats alot of oxidation going on!)

smell: somewhat medicinal… not my favorite

140F
– method 1:1 leaf volume:water volume ratio @ ~40sec: flavor: seems more distinct taste than previous, same sweetness perceived on the back sides of the tongue, and its particular ‘green’-astringent taste.
– regular brew method: flavor: a strange sensation: warm mildly sweet feeling with even more mild ‘bitter’/astringent feel. brewed longer the sweetness did not become stronger, but there was an unpleasant aftertaste – like after drinking earl grey with lots of sugar.

190F
flavor: pop of medium-high dose of astringency-bitterness on the tip of the tongue, then tongue senses some medicinal mixed green vegetal flavor. theres a touch of sweetness in here somewhere. …dont know…. maybe i brewed too much leaf. 1.3 tbsp measurer 6oz 190F 3min.
usually dont get this strong out of greens. neither the liquor color change! (must be the young leaves)
redo.

done with this. not very exciting to me, .no.
