I drank this tea this morning after I woke up in the traditional gong fu sitting. I was nearly late for work as a consequence. I blissed out for about half an hour before quickly cleaning up and getting ready to go! Dark, earthy and wit a hint of spice, I really like the depth of energy to this tea. Awesome. First steep 30 seconds, increased by 10 seconds per steep thereafter. I think I ended up getting 10 steeps out of it in the end!
