Whoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa -- just jumping around excited
You won’t believe - Pennsylvania to Austria - 4 working days.
Yes my OTTI package arrived
And I'm sure you already guess - I brewed my first Shincha.
Hey Chip all this folding reminded me of my Origami figures
Okay package number 4 was a little bit damaged - so I started with it.Zenchas Shincha Takumi
Dry leaves smell a little veggie - wet leaves smell very fresh I think.
Tried to follow your instructions and of course needed a converter first (Fahrenheit to Celsius and ounce to ml)
1:1 (in fact 4g of tea and 120ml of water) 150°F(~65°C)
Even took out my tasting set with smelling cup for the very first impression. Nice smell and it has a touch of Gyokuro - is it because of the Gokou leaves?
The second infusion was very intense and had really a taste of vegetables.
The fourth is very decent - will try a fifth but I think four are enough.
I don't know how to rate - it is to new to me. But I liked this one.
Yea I have fun
