Gongfu – in the Yiwu yixing pot.
I started the session last night & killed the leaves this morning. This is such a unique and distinct tasting sheng with some flavour notes that smack you across the face and others that are more elusive and hard to pin down; but ultimately I would say that once you get into the heart of the tea session the flavour is more of a slightly bitter and greener vegetal note at the top of the sip, like cooked green bell pepper, transitioning into a much more tangy and fruity body with a mix of tropical and citrus flavours; honey pomelo, lemon sherbet candies, and jackfruit. That jackfruit note was the hardest to nail down – but that combo of slightly waxy tropical fruit and semi meaty taste was definitely the fruity flavour that carried throughout after the first couple of steeps!! Definitely a favourite!
