Grandpa Style!

Cold weather is shou weather so yesterday I steeped up this wonderful pu’erh grandpa style. Thick and earthy deliciousness with a fruitier undertone of slightly green but still rich and starchy banana and sweet brown fig jam! I thought the flavours were a bit more dynamic as a gongfu session, but the grandpa style mug that was my afternoon constant is nothing to turn up your nose to!

Steeped up this interesting session outdoors in the park. I love sheng from Yiwu, but I’ve not tried a whole lot of shou from the region. I found it quite pleasant and relaxing w/ early steeps have a dense sweetness that reminded me of date cookies, fig jam, and freshly made banana cake intertwined with sweet wet potting soil. As the liquor thinned out the profile ventured further away from those darker fruity baked good notes and more towards greener, just under ripe bananas, cooked apples, and a softer earthiness. Overall, a pretty interesting tea, and a very tasty and easy going session!
