I just got a sample of this and brewed it in yixing. Smokey, astringent in early steeps, but good full mouthfeel and smooth. Colour of the liquor was a bit orangey yellow. Two quick rinses followed by two 30 sec steeps so far. With that small amount I already feel the expansive mind energy I get with a good chaqi (or maybe strong caffeine). I wouldn’t call this a calming evening tea. Would also not recommend on an empty stomach. I’d recommend for a sample, but probably not the whole shroom.

Flavors: Astringent, Smoke, Smooth

Boiling 0 min, 30 sec 4 g 3 OZ / 90 ML

I’m an Archivist who is addicted to tea. I love tea—it always improves my mood. My preference is for straight black teas though there is the occasional flavoured black tea that gets me smiling. These days I’m exploring Chinese tea and gongfu cha.
