Yes; I made time for gongfu on one of the afternoons at the hotel, because I can’t go a full week without steeping up some tea gongfu…
This Jingmai Huangpian has become increasingly more syrupy and with age & the fragrant floral notes of violet and peony are matched with a sugarcane playfully fruity top note sweetness. This is close to the last of my sample, and it’s become increasingly hard to justify sessions of it when it’s only continued to get greater and greater. Surely I’m not alone in feeling like you ‘need’ the perfect moment to enjoy the last session or two of those special teas that you deeply regret not buying more of when you had the chance. Something about the timing of this session just felt right.
