Teas I’ve enjoyed
Sencha Yutaka Midori from O-Cha
Easily my favourite sencha. Careful with the temperature!
Pre-heat 100ml gaiwan, ~4 grams leaves, smell… ahh.
- brew 65°C half a minute
- 65°C strain immediately
- 70°C perhaps 10 seconds
- improvise based on previous results
Sencha Asanoka Hi Ire
No idea, bought in Probuzený Slon perhaps?
Yame Gyokuro from O-Cha
Use lotsa leaf!
- perhaps 50°C half a minute
- 50°C strain immediately
13 years aged Da Hong Pao from Yunnan Sourcing
Easy brew, start at 90°C and take it from there.
Tie Guan Yin
Looking for my favourite…
Super easy brew green tea. Best to start from 80°C, but anything goes. Makes an insane amount of brewings for a green tea.
2016 Yunnan Sourcing “Red Monkey” Raw Pu-erh Tea Mini Cake
A good young cheap sheng puerh, no longer available.
