Pictures: infusion 1, 2, wet leaf

10oz dixiecup + tea about .75cm + roomtemp water to half + rest with 200F water
good param
#1 ~3min : good strong smell, flavor of “pan-fried” green not as strong but getting there, seems on the watery side tho, maybe should’ve infused longer.
#2 ~3min : i’d say something of a greenish astringency twiggy, pan-friedness low now.

~2scoops ~5 oz ~170?F
liquor: nice and yellow-a tad fluorescent πŸ™‚ , i hope its natural
smell: ok
flavor: good, cant describe exactly, i’ll say its somewhere around pan-fried…vegetal…
wet leaf looks green and young

2 infusions (~10oz) kept all taste.
3rd infusion ~6oz lost “pan-friedness” more green vegetal

not the most original/complex/strong flavor…the huan shan mao feng, similar taste profile >> fried flavor <<, plus… i like the leaf better.
