I’m really enjoying all of the virtual tea sessions I’ve been having with tea friends – it’s something I’ve done even before Covid-19 but I will admit that it’s increased since all the self isolation and I don’t mind one bit. Last night I had a multi hour (and multi tea) session with a local Montreal tea friend, Teajay, and this was one of two teas that I steeped up!
It was also a fun way to participate in former Steepster friend, Boychik’s #puparty tag – basically an encouragement for all of the instagram tea community to brew and share some pu’erh tea virtually with one another! This was obviously the one that I chose! It tread the line between bitter and sweet beautifully, with notes of bitter greens, cane sugar, and ripe stonefruit & red fruit all mixed in. Great huigan, and really warm body feel after I got a few steeps in! I ended up brewing it out completely, over nine lovely steeps.
