I almost got called (texted?) into work today. I said no due to the want of trying the few teas in my stash that I haven’t gotten to and in the hope of sipping some of said stash down.
The dry leaf smells a bit like camp, like a mix between the scent of a campfire and the sauna. But there is something else on top of that smell that I cannot place. I am likely doing this tea a disservice by using a gravity steeper when the directions indicate to “Gonfu brew for best results.” The only thing I get from the first few sips is smoke. It feels almost heavy in my mouth, in a nice way. It is growing on me and I think this would be great for a cooler fall day.
