From Gong Fu Tea Shop

Congou is the Chinese contraction for Gong Fu – you may recognize this tea type by its alternate name – Gong Fu Cha. This China Black is grown in the mountains of Fujian province. It is an early-season, small-leafed tea that produces a rich cup of reddish-brown liquor. As its name implies, it is a terrific choice for the traditional Gong Fu Tea Service, but also performs well with conventional steeping methods.

I tried this tea again when I was in Chicago, and it tasted a lot better than the other times I had it, so I’m bumping up the rating. Not sure what made the difference, the fact that I was using unfiltered Chicago city water, or that I used a little more leaf. Anyway, it was more robust and had a deep, distinct, earthy flavor.

It still isn’t my favorite black tea, but at least it had a richer flavor this time, and was good enough that I could finish drinking it, and even enjoy it to a point!
