2 Tasting Notes
This has become a favourite daily drinker for me. It is not very complex but has a lovely nutty cocoa flavour with a touch of sweetness to it. It is forgiving and can be steeped longer or done grandpa style and still be quite delicious. The only reason I didn’t score it higher is the lack of complexity, otherwise I love this tea.
Flavors: Cocoa, Nuts
I have been drinking this tea daily for a few weeks now and think it is rather good for the price. I mostly have to brew it western style to throw in my to go mug before work. I steep it 5-6 grams in a large mug for about a minute and don’t notice very much bitterness at all, just a slightly sweet earthy flavour with a bit of camphor and floral flavours. The few times I have had the chance for a proper gong fu session it really opened up by the 4th or 5th steep and lasted about 10 steeps. The liquor is fairly thick with a dark red colour. This is a great everyday tea!
