Second tea from my Yiwu Mountain order that I’m dipping into – first from the sampler though, since the 2019 Spring one was a freebie sample. Steeped Gongfu of course, at work though so not in my yixing pot. That’s ok though – a gaiwan works just fine!!

4.6g/70ml gaiwan – 200 degree water.

First five infusions were shared with a coworker, so I didn’t drink all of them – but I had infusions six to twelve all to myself! This was a nice session; I only drank three of the first five infusions, but after that I was already feeling fucked up. Definitely, in my opinion, a tea where the emphasis is on body feels/qi and less so on taste. Not to say it didn’t taste pleasant, because it did – but very silky, smooth and mellow without much of the sweet or fruity notes I would say often define this region. As it progressed though, around steep six/seven, I was getting more sweetness in the infused cups as well as a very light bitterness. It was a good contrast of the two flavours, actually.

I actually liked the 2019 maocha better; it was more flavourful and sweet/fruity with more body to the steeps. Both teas were lovely, but if I’m choosing between taste and body feels, I lean more heavily towards wanting a good taste. Just a personal preference.

Will absolutely, and happily, finish this tea off though!
