I have missed late gong fu sessions since caffeine started keeping me up at night, so I bought two of the crassicolumna teas from Verdant to see if they would substitute.
This will fulfill my August prompt for a tea I have never tried before!
This steeped up so pale – I was not expecting that. I thought it would get darker with subsequent steeps but it didn’t.
Ashman and I both enjoyed it, even though I didn’t find it very complex. The most memorable thing about it to me was that it had a very creamy mouthfeel, especially at the end of the sip and building throughout the session.
I think next time around I will use more leaf and see if any complexity becomes apparent. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable and relaxing session and I am not sorry I bought it.
