I can’t believe I’ve stored this tea for two years. I’ve drank this every few months, seeing how it changed over time. It’s been so good, and I’ve tried to store it as carefully as possible, but this is the last of it.
Teaware: Hong ni Fang Gu teapot
Brew style: Chazhou Gongfu
Water Amount: ~ 150ml
Tea Amount: 9.14g
Brewing Temperatures: 200+
Time (seconds): ?? I’m going by feel.
The number of steeps has considerably dropped since I started brewing this, but it’s still good. The flavor diminishes by the 4th steep although the general feeling remains.
The flavor profile has minimal changed from my previous review of this tea, but much more mellow than when I first tasted it:
Notes of smoke, chocolate, nuts, then a sweetness of molasses & florals as the steeps progress. It’s still one of my favorite teas.
