White PoenyWeather: a little bit grumpy and strange
Tea: White peony white tea
Tea wares: Thin white China Gaiwan (水云间), Black sand made cup from Ying Kiln, Square handmade drawn blue and white cup, vintage style thick blue and white cup.
Water: filtered water (around 97 °C)
With a little bit greenish and tiny white feather, the tea smelled like fresh beans after the gaiwan was warmed up with hot water.
I poured water into Gaiwan from an average height which could prevent the bitterness coming out. The tea soup was in a very light yellow colour. Because of the warmth from water, the bean smell gradually expanded in the Gaiwan and went into my head. Suddenly I felt the joy of tea. I wasn’t bothered to throw the first infusion away, instead, I drank it and felt a subtle sweetness and smoothness.White Peony
The second infusion was better than the first one. With a little bit darker yellow, the flavour became more sophisticated in a good way. I felt warmed up and started sweating. However it made my throat slightly stringent, as well as burp. I think the comfort took over my discomfort. So still felt good.
The third infusion was quite similar to the second one.
I didn’t brew the tea long enough for the fourth one. Thus the soup didn’t look as yellow as the second and third ones. But the flavour remained the same.
I brewed the fifth one a bit long, about 1 minute. The soup looked golden which I really liked. It stopped raining so that I could see the blue sky. It was a little bit windy as the trees in front of my window were waving their hands.
Till the eighth infusion, the flavour was the same without changing much. I wouldn’t say it changed a lot in the 8th. I’d rather say it reminded me of being satisfied and grateful. Nothing will remain the same all the time. The more important thing is to enjoy the present.White Poeny White Tea
I assumed this White Peony could last for quite a few more infusions. But I felt I had enough. We should always know when to stop, not for really the final, but for a new start.
