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.

Hmm I didn’t care for this tea. It just tasted really bland to me, lacking the complexity and depth of flavor I like—and come to expect—in really good black teas. There is just not much to say about it. I even tried steeping it for a shorter period of time (3 minutes instead of the typical 5) because the description said it was good for gong fu style drinking, but that didn’t change anything taste-wise. As a last resort, I finally tried cold-steeping it, and that also did not bring out anything new in terms of flavor. Oh well, I’m glad I gave it a try, though.
