I finally tried this tea with water from my bamboo charcoal.

First infusion was 15 sec with boiling water as per the website that had all the instructions on how to brew dan cong. This was the best this tea has ever tasted. It was honey sweet and peachy. All other infusions after that were a bit disappointing but not bad.

Here’s a picture of my brewing session.


So what is Shrek doing in it? Well, in my kitchen where my kettle is , I discovered this little Shrek today. How long has he been there? I don’t know. It was weird that I’ve been using that kettle most of the day and who knows how many times yesterday and never even noticed Shrek sitting in the corner on my counter. lol My husband must have put him there sometime. (He just told me now it was there a couple of days!)

Green teas are my favourite teas but I also enjoy: white, some herbal,rooibos, raw pu’erh, light oolongs, a little bit of black , and a little bit of ripe pu’erh. I have moved away from artificial flavourings and there’s hardly anything left in my cabinet with artificial flavouring or colours. It is mostly straight teas or tea blends.
