This is my current cup/ shou yixing pot. I looked outside and saw 2-3 inches of snow on the road. I know I had this last night, but it was so pleasant, I wanted to have more to warm up with.
The shou brews up dark right out the gate. There’s a sweet, earthy, chocolate note lingering on the tongue. The mouthfeel is full and a coating is left behind. I want to keep sipping it. I want to brew it endlessly right now. I weighed the remaining bit of the cake and I only have 80g left. I may try to conquer for the next week.
Side note: last night, I noted 13 steeps before throwing it in the waste pile.
Edit: I’m not sure if this is the shou version or not. I forgot that there’s a sheng version, too.
Flavors: Chocolate, Creamy, Earth
