Steep lightly

I got this as a 25g sample, and brewed it both in glass, clay, and China. The first two, in glass and clay, were too bitter, and I decided I did not like it. And when I dislike something, I finish them off first, and keep the good stuff for later.

However, for the finishing, I decided to halve the amount of leaves, mainly because it was late in the day and I foresaw time for only a few brewings.

With that halved amount of leaves, however, this became a delicate brew with a flowery scent and taste. Not quite sure whether to give 3 or 4 stars, but landed on 3, to give some room at the top for my absolute favourites.
