Just getting out of the dentist i stop at my local David’s tea to buy the glass Gongfu Teapot and some Tie Kwan Yin to try when they ask me if i want to try this one too ( i don’t care for them try to sell more thing if they don’t get pushy and they don’t) it’s was smelling good so i bought 25g to try also.
Perfect tea to try my Gongfu teapot ( and my first try at Gongfu for that matter ) I can’t say if my technique was good or not and how that affect the tea but i did find that one good a little earthy but just enough for me to like it I didn’t get the pine taste they talk about before the third steep when a little hint begin to appear.
I run out of water after 1 rinse and 3 steep and was to lazy to go get more with my mouth hurting i will get more water later and try more steep
Will give that one a Note after trying it also western style in my steeper
I’m gonna love that little teapot :) a yixing one will take is place probably someday lol
Update Western style : Just made a cup western style in my steepster following the instruction they gave on the bag water at 92 for 5 minute i can detect some bitterness but also some sweetness that was not in the Gongfu If i have to choose this one if better Gongfu less bitter but overall it’s good i still prefer Tie Guan Yin
