Amazing. Drinking this Tieguanyin again this morning. I had opened one of the vacuum-sealed 7-gram packs last Friday to share with someone, and got a little zealous in my endeavor to pour half of the package into my gaiwan. Looking at how much leaf was left in that pack this morning, it must have been more like 3/4 of the pack that I’d used last time. So I was looking at maybe 2 grams in my gaiwan this morning, and debating whether I wanted to open up another pack. I decided to just brew up the two grams and have a “light” session with it.
HA! Drinking the third infusion now, I could hardly call this “light” compared to my other sessions with it. Even with minimal leaf, this Tieguanyin still goes the distance. A testament to its power, richness, and depth. I can’t wait to try the autumn picking of Tieguanyin that Verdant will be getting in soon, as it’s purported to be the best crop in years, and comparable to this one in quality.
Oh, with this tea in my cup, it’s going to be a great winter.
