Gongfu!

This cryptically named sheng is a tea I received as a free sample from BLT a few orders back, one that I’m just now trying – or, rather, just tried yesterday. I didn’t measure the leaf; just sort of filled the 100ml teapot I was using until it looked reasonably full; additionally I only steeped five infusions, even though this could have handled more – but I looked up at the clock and it was about 10:30PM so I felt I should probably stop drinking tea for the evening at that point…

Here’s my summary on instagram of the flavours:

Whatever this actually is, it brews up quite lovely! Very sweet initially, I found this sheng finished lightly and pleasantly bitter and somewhat resin-y, with a lovely huigan. It’s a touch floral; maybe notes of violets!? At the same time I found that the sweeter notes had a bit of a mellower “orange” stonefruit (peach/apricot/nectarine) note. Thanks BLT for the interesting sample!
