I’ve made Tobetto a lot. I feel that 60° is spot on. It’s a very nice tea but unforgiving of hotter temperatures except in later steeps. You should be able to get 6 steepings from it, so you do get your money’s worth.
Indeed, #5 and #6 (86°C for 2 mins) were both very enjoyable, even though the pot had to wait for half a day. #7 at 98°C for several minutes didn't bring much. I ate a bit of the tea, it was quite nice, too, crispy fresh.
