I felt really off yesterday, so I only ended up having one tea over the course of the morning and afternoon. That’s really atypical of me – especially on the weekends – but eventually I started feeling a bit better in the evening, so I scooped up some easily accessible teaware and a blanket/comic and decided to have a second tea; a mid evening tea session outside with some fresh air…
I used a quarter of a single “Biscuit” for this session, which is approximately 3g of sheng. That’s a little bit light for how I usually leaf my Gongfu sessions but 6g was also definitely too much for the 70ml gaiwan that I was using so it was the best compromise. I got five infusions, and they were all nice. Definitely more sweet and fruity than I had expected, with a red fruit (pomegranate?) note throughout and lingering throat sweetness. Also a bit of astringency, and a slight greener note too. I enjoyed it, and am excited to play more with these biscuits!
