I received this tea in the form of a generously sized 10 gram sample that was included in a recent order I placed with What-cha.
Let’s not beat around the tea bush here – this tea enjoys legendary status, and quite rightly so.
Spoiler alert – this tea is incredibly good.
The spoon scraped hard against the bottom of the caddy. The “cheap but good enough as a palate cleanser and general digestive system degreasant” Golden Sail brand shou Pu-erh was all gone. Oh.
Before I go any further, let it be noted that I recorded my tasting notes for this tea on the back of an old shopping list.
I received this tea as a 3g sample along with my recent purchases from “House of Tea“, an amount which is usually acceptable for steeping gong-fu / Asian style in one of my 100ml capacity clay gaiwans.
It’s funny how things work out sometimes, isn’t it?
