Gongfu Sipdown (619)!
I was setting up for an educational tasting for some people in the office, on Tuesday, and was sitting in on the presentation – but wasn’t actively leading it or taking part. So, I brought my gongfu table and a carafe of water with me, and while the people doing the tasting drank the tea selected for the tasting I drank this instead.
It was a two hour long tasting, and over the course of it I think I steeped about twelve infusions – not counting the rinse. I discarded one in the middle that I had BADLY oversteeped because I was distracted, but otherwise this was a truly lovely session and all of the infusions were delicious. I was feeling so tea drunk by the end – just nice and warm, floaty and happy. This tea has actually really grown on me since my first time tasting it and I’ve kind of fallen in love with the strong, but nuanced and sweet, floral notes present…
But also, damn that huigan tho!? Wow.
