White Two Tea, 'Clover Patch Oolong'
So as I measure out four grams on the scale I am a nervous-purvis. I am tip-toeing around this sweet smelling bunch of leaves like it was an unstable explosive. I know buttkis about Wuyi, Yancha,Rock teas, any of that stuff, and Denny did suggest it was possible to create something 'GROSS', his actual word, if not attending to this sort of tea properly.
So, as I get ready to brew, I am not bored, I can tell you that! I am not complacent. I am fully awake. I am a little on edge, and that's fun. I rinse, rinse and steep and.... And it's NOT gross, at least I haven't blown it yet. Four grams in a 120ml gaiwan, I chose those parameters based on the TeaDB boys using 5 grams in a 60 or 70 ml gaiwan and knowing they are bat-shit crazy, because they all but said so in the video, so I figured these parameters were OK for a first time. Rinsed twice at 180 degrees, and flash-brewed three steeps one right after the other at 200f. VERY tasty and quite different than any oolongs I've had thus far.
More soon as steeps are experimented with!
