Gongfu Sipdown (1455)!
Finished this one off during the afternoon while also also breaking in some gorgeous new Qinghao teaware pieces from a recent Crafted Leaf Teas order!! I love the distinct heavy and dank earthiness of heicha so much, and this one is very interesting with some very brothy & resinous notes of cocobolo wood, golden raisins, peat and damp forest undergrowth, and casacara! It hits so deep, with some really grounding and complex flavours that are making for a really serene afternoon session!
My only complaint is that it steeped out more quickly than I’d have liked. I got like eight or nine good steeps and I would have easily been able to sit down and enjoy a session double that length without coming close to tiring of these amazing flavours.
This was another sample that I recieved from Togo – so far I’ve been very impressed with the different heicha samples he provided me and in general I’m enjoying the teas from Yunnan Sourcing much more than I had expected to. I’ve found several I would order for myself, and I’m including this among that list.
