6g, hongni shuiping, 2x rinse

I woke up feeling groggy, stuffed up, congested, and dry after a sudden temperature drop and resulting rush of dry air, and an exhausting week. This tea cleared me up with ease, it cleared my throat, cleared my sinuses, opened my lungs, cleared my eyes, basically purging dryness and lubricating to the mucus membranes. its amazing to see a tea act so powerfully but gentle.

I’m not saying this tea is amazing compared to other teas, but from a “medicinal” or therapeutic perspective, it was just what I needed.

It is also good flavored and lasting clean feeling in mouth. A bit vegetal with a tangy note in there, which should round off with a bit more age.

I like all teas but mostly drink sheng and Taiwan oolong.

My tea notes are just thoughts that come to mind as I drink, so I jot them down. There’s no format to them, just what I want to remember from the experience.

Oh, and why isn’t there a “bacon” flavor option on steepster?
