The bouquet of the brewed tea is multifaceted, aged, woody-herbaceous with notes of tobacco, dried apples, walnut biscuit and roasted sunflower seeds. The fragrance is warm and tender, complex. The taste is full bodied and mellow, slightly astringent, sweetish, with berry sourness and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (80-90°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot 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 second), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat steeping up to 8 times.
