370 g teacake of medium density, broken with fingers into large lengthwise twisted brown leaves, thin stems and tips. The aroma is restrained, nutty. The infusion is dark chestnut color.
The brewed tea has mature, complex bouquet with notes of old dry wood, rustic bread, autumn leaves, nuts and berries. The fragrance is viscous and warm, woody. The taste is rich and smooth, sweetish, with delicate wood tartness, spicy nuances and berry acidity, transforming into velvety finish.
Brew tea with hot water (95°C) in a gaiwan or in a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 4-5 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 6-8 seconds.
