Sipdown of a tea closest to sipdown for ashmanra’s sipdown challenge. Apparently I meant to gong fu the last of this – and given how little leaf was left, doing so was my first thought – but I made it on a work day and wanted a larger-volume brewing method. I still find this closer to a tie guan yin than the strong minerality I usually associate with dong ding. Which was actually a pleasant surprise, since I had forgotten that about this particular tea and wasn’t super looking forward to it.
