7 grams, gongfu in 125 ml gaiwan.
A tea, prepared as a mood booster and it didn’t work. I feel miserable after this week. It was quite a crazy week with many emails exchanged back and forth; dealing with incompetent people all around the world; totaly wrong documents (MSDS); and I made such a huge mistake today and I won’t be able to fix it before Wednesday, as I am going to two days training outside my workplace. And in the end of the month our fiscal year ends as well and that means that everything must be checked and made correct.
Anyway, this tea is pretty good. Actually, better than I have hoped! When I read Roswell’s note about elderflower note, I knew it is perfect for the starting spring. It is indeed like that and it has got a nice mouthfeel too. One steep was astringent somehow, but well maybe it was too much leaf and long steep, it was one of the firsts…
The second reviewer said it has got grapefruit notes and I can see them there too. It has got citrusy note, but without that bitter notes of grapefruit in first steeps.
And I am adding notes of florals, sweet notes of citrus fruits. Tangerine, orange for me in later steeps.
