The SO’s request for the morning. Didn’t have time for gongfu before she has to be at work, so we did western, following WP’s recommendations.
The dry leaves are dark and twisted, once wet they expand to reveal an even light brown color. The liquor is a nice amber, much lighter in color than I expected.
I sip. The texture is smooth, and I’m getting cocoa notes and some woodiness with a stone fruit aftertaste.
I’m enjoying this. Time for a resteep. 4.5 minutes.
It’s sweet! I’m getting a light sugary taste behind the cocoa and wood, and it’s still mostly smooth. The aftertaste is still stone fruit. And the qi hit me during the resteep, totally taking me by surprise.
Overall, quite enjoyable for me, so I’m very glad we decided to give this a shot.
