Continuing the roasted TGY samples, I will compare 15 hours of roasting with 30 hours of roasting.This time around I have taken the Professor‘s advice and used more tea leaves with water close to boiling point.

An extra five hours of roasting has darkened the leaves only slightly more.

But the change in liquor color is much more dramatic. The toasty roasting flavor is certainly more concentrated as well but not quite as potent as the finished product after 59 hours of roasting.

Compared to the 15 hr the 30 hr roast leaves the mouth drier. I don’t really notice any other major differences.

Tomorrow I will try to complete the experiment~
