This is my final sipdown & tea of the day, again from NofarS. I’m ending the day with 278 teas in my collection!
I started drinking gongfu steepings of this while teaching my final student of the day. I’m not sure how many cups I had, but once her lesson ended I got busy cleaning the stove hood, & all tea drinking came to an end. I am saving these leaves, however, as I’m sure they still have much more to give & after a quick rinse tomorrow, I plan to steep them out some more. This is a smooth & tasty shu, free from fermentation flavors & odors, with a sweetness to it & a nice earthy grounding energy. It brews a deep dark cup, & that’s the kind of cup I love!
