341 Tasting Notes
Great great great! I made 7 rounds (gongfu style) of tea from just a few grams of this tea, each one fantastic. The first few were strong, earthy, rich, slightly smokey. The tea mellowed down from the third round, and a certain sweetness emerged. There were a few more rounds in this tea, but I ran out of hot water and was too lazy to boil some more. Worth every penny.
Backlogging from yesterday. The leaves of this tea are staggeringly long and they smell fantastic – sweet, fruity and very intriguing. Didn’t have the time to brew them gongfu style yesterday, and that’s a shame. Their smell shows so much promise, and but brewing them western style simply flattens the tea’s taste. It’s still very tasty – sweet with no bitterness or astringency, full of fruit notes.
Will try to drink it gongfu style and post then.
Norbu is a wonderful company – super fast shipping, great site, good prices, fantastic packaging.
