Gongfu!

This sheng has a very calm energy to it which compliments the thick yet soft liquor of the tea. The tasting notes are a bit more ethereal and less easily defined than other teas I’ve steeped as of late. Just a hint of something jammy and stonefruit like in the undertones but with top notes that remind me of the flower and hay fields back home in the Prairies in the hot, sweltering summer heat. It feels like this pu’erh is on the cusp of being something really, really distinct and delicious. I don’t think it’s quite there just yet, though…

Here, have a copy of the notes I took for myself while I was trying my sample of this tea:

1 rinse

10s: Petrichor and gentle bitterness. I can smell honey and light woodsiness but not taste it. Warmth and a bit of roughness in the back of my throat. Immediately relaxing, which I desperately need this morning. Texture is soft.

15s: A bit less bitterness, a bit more woodsiness, otherwise pretty much the same. Oh, and texture is getting less soft and more oily – I’m starting to feel it coat my mouth. There’s not much flavor, it’s just a very calming experience. I think I could fall asleep to this tea pretty happily.

20s: Mostly same but getting sweeter, especially around my teeth afterwards. I shouldn’t have started this one before work, wish I had more time to push it.

25s: My ears just popped. That was weird. Maybe unrelated. Anyways, getting a bit more astringency I think. No, wait, my left ear definitely feels warmer inside. What is going on here.

35s: I think I just hit a floral note? Both my ears now feel like they’re filled with warm liquid, and my mouth is getting a bit fuzzy. It’s naptime, but I’m hella late for work. This is pretty decent tea, and I have erred.

that’s funny stuff, about your ears popping during a tasting

Ha, yeah, it’s weird but I get that a lot with tea with lots of energy.
