From Bitterleaf Teas

Made from 2016 Fuding shoumei grade material, this tea is an extremely flexible and portable option to brew at home or on the go. Affordable and sweet, this tea offers an uncomplicated experience in a compact package.

If brewing gongfu style, we recommend allowing for an extended first brew of up to 1 minute or an additional rinse to allow the tea to open up. After several brews, you may want to boil the leaves for several minutes (refilling with water as needed) to extract the most from these little fellas.

Alternatively, this is also a great tea to throw in a thermos and refill while you’re out, maintaining plenty of flavour and never getting too bitter. Cold brewing is another great option!

Each little mountain is ~4-6g in weight. The size options below are minimums, and may contain a few grams extra.

$0.13/gram

Gongfu Sipdown (1471)!

Takes a bit to get these unique compressed minis to open up, but with a rinse and some patience (and a little extra prying to assist) this made for a pleasantly easy going tea session with a lot of straightforward notes of hay, honeysuckle, and peach skins. However, I really enjoy the steeps when really pushed quite hard as the flavour develops into a richer buckwheat honey and brûleéd peach/nectarine note with an overall very autumnal feel to it!

I see that, in the past, I rated this quite high and based on this session I’m not sure I feel like it’s worth quite that high of a rating. That said, it’s a nice tea! I prefer the Jingmai sheng pressed into these same mountain shapes, but I could maybe see this making its way into a future order (if they’re even still in stock!?) because it would be a nice and convenient travel tea option.
