Saturday April 10, 2010: After Thursday evening's blind tasting which included an Assam and a Ceylon, although I did get it right (ahem), I confess I felt it was abit of blind luck. So I brewed them up this morning to see if I could see more visual clues.
|About 30 seconds after infusion.|
3 grams in 4 oz water (I was looking for visuals not taste ;) You can already see the liquor of the Assam on the left is darker.
|Comparing the appearance of the wet leaves.|
|Comparing cloudyness after 5 minutes.|
By 30 minutes later both teas were densely cloudy -- couldn't see the bottom of the glass in either of them.
