From Seattle to Seattle, Inbetweenisode #16 covers the sister tea of Inbetweenisode #15. Also sold by Crimson Lotus Tea, the Ji Nian Tuo is a blend with larger leaf grades and is a very different tea. The profile is far more matured, with a smooth, earthy profile that isn’t nearly as fruity. Big thanks to Brian who sent this tea our way!

Thanks for this!
Just wondering about your experience with a third infusion after some time has elapsed: do you normally leave gaiwan covered or uncovered between steeps?
Also wondering if compression method may in part account for degree of compactness, whether manually by stone or by machine?
Just some things to ponder about…
