8 year old Tieguanyin

I used 7g, and after a rinse, I brewed it for 60s, 60s, 90s, 180s, 300s.

1: A little light. It still has a roasted/charcoal flavor. There is also some graininess, and maybe a plum flavor? It seems like there is some kind of fruit in the taste. It leaves a sweet creamy and fruity aftertaste. Where's the floralness?

2: A little more aged character came out. It's kinda hard to describe the aged character. Maybe herbal? There is a slight orange peel flavor mixed in also. Again, it leaves a creamy and fruity aftertaste.

3: Same, except herbal hint came out more.

4: More fruity, but still mostly herbal.

5: Same, but lighter.
