I recently bought a yixing teapot as an early Christmas gift to myself. ;) With the intention getting to know that sort of teaware, and to drink much more oolong!
So far I am pleased with the initial results, because whenever I brewed this tea in my gaiwan, I think the tannins were a bit too bold. So while I enjoyed the flavours, it always seemed a bit unfriendly. But with the new tea vessel, I don’t have that problem anymore. It gave me a much more soft and balanced experience.
Anyhow, the tea description is spot on. Besides the familiar flavours I expected, it’s a very mouth watering tea. I find it easy to relax and daydream while I sip. Yesterday, when I also had this, the flavour lingered throughout the day. So overall I think this is a very memorable and easy tea to like.
