This is the first time drinking this tea! When I warmed the leaves in the gaiwan without waster the leaves had a fruity, nutty, and toasty aroma. I did a 10 s wash and the first steeping was for 10 s at 194 degrees F. The tea liquor was golden as I outed and had a dark golden / reddish hue. I had tea foam from the tea wash and first two pours. When I smelled the leaves after the wash and first steeping the leaves had a citrus aroma. I can’t help but say as I steeped in the tea leaves had a fruity pebble aroma to them. The tea was warm, toasty, sweet sometimes on the inhale. Overall a fun and complex yummy brew. Can’t wait to try again!

My name is G (they/them). I have always loved tea. Growing up near NYC and having access to Chinatown-I have had random assortment of teawares and teas without ever learning about gong fu cha! I have spent quarantine learning about Gong Fu Cha from So Han at West China Tea (on their youtube channel Tea House Ghost!). Ever since I have been learning the discipline and art of gong fu cha. I have a penchant for ripe pu-erhs and oolongs! (still learning about the different roasts and styles) Open to learning more from more experienced tea heads! I am also into doing tea swaps! check out my cupboard (you may have to message me because some of my teas are not logged)!
