Got gongfu fatigue. I’ve been collecting the leaves from my sessions from the past 2 weeks and brewing them together grandpa style. Friends have said they actually prefer the tea from these “remainders” than the more aggressive steeps from the original sessions.
If I didn’t like a tea during session, I did not add them to the blend. The result is a very approachable but energetic thing that still brews a deep golden yellow. Let’s see how far this goes.
I think this will become a regular thing. Why discard leaves that are still giving a ton of tasty, relaxing energy?
