I had an awesome opportunity to meet up with TheWeekendSessions this week and have tea together and trade some samples, but more on that later – I’m bringing it up now though because this was one of the teas that I packed up for him to try, but because I’m always a little hesitant to give someone a sample of something I’ve not tried before (just in case it’s awful) I wanted to try the tea out for myself first…

This is a tea that I won on instagram – from a partnership with Totealy Tea and TheOolongDrunk. When it arrived, it definitely had a bit of fermentation funk to the aroma, so I let it air out a little longer than I would typically for a shou. Steeped up, the first infusion or two were a bit danker and rougher than I’d normally lean towards, but I pushed past that and the tea eventually settled into a very desirable and delicious profile.

The quote from instagram: It’s smooth and sweet, with a finishing note that gives me earthy, dense molasses/treacle vibes with a hint of dark fruit!!

Seven steeps total – five of which were quite enjoyable, the first two discarded after a few probitory sips. Could have steeped longer, I recon, but I on weekdays I’m usually drinking Gongfu quite late at night so I often cut my sessions off a bit early – this was the case with this tea.
