(large thoughts about his have been made) “Cha dig!” I love it, i brew it Gongfu, I follow Verdant’s Style, I do it all perfectly, that “i love it” isn’t the dumb comment, i legit would love to sit down to this complex tea everyday, it’s limited and expensive and it’s worth it! GET IT!

This tea, when made in the Western Style by Peet’s will not be as good as the Gongfu style! 4-5 Minutes?! WHAT! NO! 1 tablespoon of this tea, a short rinse and infusing 6 oz at a time can do the best tricks!
1st: 3-4s (explodes with flavor!)
2nd: 4-6s (explodes even more!)
3rd: 5-8s (flavor begins to dissipate)
4th: 9-15s (The Finally! Last flavor kick)

This tea, although an Orange Pekoe, (The tea type that ruled western brewers for a very long time, who also made it terribly) Lion Mountain Keemun can be made anew! Since it is a small leaf bud-set tea, only 1 teaspoon is needed per 6 ounces of water. 1 steep is all that can be done to ensure the best flavor though. so double the amount of tea and water when you brew. Rinse, then infuse all of the tea,after 3 minutes, pour 6 oz out, then after 5 minutes, poor the rest out. This ensures the best from this black tea!

Welcome fellow Infusee’s,

I am working to better the “Western brewer’s” experience by reviewing teas using a few Gongfu steps to help gradually improve the brewing of those who aren’t aware of the incredibleness Gongfu provides!

I hope to one day see a world where all brew with gongfu!
