Gongfu Sipdown (805)!
Thank you to Hachachacha for sharing this tea with me in 2019 – I’m sorry it took me a while to try it, but it made for a really lovely session this morning!
I found this pu’erh strong and assertive, with some early on coating astringency. The liquor was thick, with notes of artichoke hearts, cumin, and smoked paprika and sweet floral undertones slinking into the finish. This tea had a great huigan & feeling in the throat!!
Thank you so much for sharing – this is a pu’erh I likely would not have selected for myself, so I appreciated how pleasantly surprised I was with the session!
