The colours of tea

April 25, 2008 · 2 Comments

Well, I tried something today, but not too successfully. I wanted to take a series of picture of the changing colour of the tea I brewed, but, due to the fact that 1) I don’t have a tripod and thus the position of the camera changed, and 2) my light source was a little unsteady today, since I was relying on a sun that sometimes hid behind clouds, the pictures didn’t come out very well.

But nevertheless… this was the attempt. The tea was Iwii’s sample 1b. Hou De’s big character zhong…. rather sour in the first two or three infusions before turning a little better. This tea needs to wait.

    Hum I am a little afraid now. The fact that this tea needs to wait, I definitely agree (and it is not a bad thing I believe), but the fact you found it sour, is a bit more of a concern… I am going to brew it this morning.
    PS: The fact the pictures are cycling on the page is also a bit annoying: as I wasn’t careful at first I thought “geee how much leaves has he put to get some many infusions from that tea?” before realizing it was cycling when one ended up obviously darker than the others…
