357-grams tea cake of medium density, easily divided into medium-sized, brown, flagella twisted leaves and buds with thin cuttings. The aroma is restrained, fruity-balsamic. The infusion is transparent, with an amber shade.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is mature and multifaceted, fruity and spicy, with notes of autumn leaves, aged cognac, oakmoss and exotic wood resins. The aroma is deep and rich, woody-balsamic with a fruity accent. The taste is soft and smooth, full-bodied, a bit astringent, with a refined fruity sourness, transforming into the juicy, lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (90-95°C) in a gaiwan or in a teapot made of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 5-7 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 1-2 seconds) increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can steep the tea up to 15 times.
