Gong Fu from last weekend.

I always do this thing where I put off writing the tasting notes for Gong Fu sessions and then by the time I get around to writing them I don’t really remember the details of the Gong Fu session anymore. It’s an issue; and I know this but then I keep doing it all over again…

So with that in mind: I actually got this tea from Veck in a Secret Santa type exchange but because I am a completely awful hoarder I haven’t tried it yet and that was at least two years ago, maybe three. I think I steeped this roughly ten times; though I stacked the steeps in a larger pitcher two at a time. So ten infusions, but only five cups of tea. That seems to be my preferred steeping method for Gong Fu as of late.

Here’s the blurb I wrote the day I drank it, over on instagram:

“I don’t know A LOT about it, but am enjoying the light bitterness and green bell pepper notes contrasted against sweeter, fruitier notes like plum/concord grape. First steeps had sweet smoke notes too!? Sort of like a jammier tasting greener sheng type thing… "

It was also just a gorgeous looking tea; the leaf was this beautiful colour! Sort of a green & purple-y looking thing. Really lovely.
