liquor pic: you can see the debris, last pic is on a letter size paper.

1scoop battles warm waters for long time:
#1 4oz ~180?F x 3 min : smell: floral/orchid. flavor: nice and strong orchid/floral soooo like this very much
#2 4oz ~190F x 3 min: mmmmm… same
#3 4oz ~200F x 3 min: mm… losing orchidness… could say ~ 1/2
#4 4oz room temp water x ~15min : still going,
#5 4oz room temp water x ~20min or more: still orchidy! oh so nice, still have flavor on the tongue after many minutes…

only bugger is little dust/bits/particles that settle in the cup. to avoid them just wait till theyre all down, and slowly tilt the gaiwan into the drinking hole.

please observe the *NO ASTRINGENCY* sign. yes.

hazy tea memory from 1 year ago…. had this flavor before, liked it… wonder if it was a winghopfung or a tenren…

think this had pretty good Qi also (feel kinda warm inside, a little agitated) (but maybe the liquid was still warm enough to spark the heat releasing mechanism in the skin), will need to retry on a another day, to make sure.

im sleepy.

i think i like this one.
