Started the day with the very good Legend of Tung Ting from teahome, now...
90s select aged Nan Tou from Hou De. Mmmnnn, this tea is fantastic! Long aftertaste, 10+ brewing strength, amazing cha qi and reasonably priced.
boiling Fiji water, gaiwan, enough leaves to create a loose weave that totally fills the cup once expanded, quick rinse, 20, 30, 40, 50, 55, +
One reviewer said this about the 90s Nan Tou, I can't say it better so I'm quoting.
"This tea is exquisite. The aged quality is immediately evident--strength, depth, fire. Then follows sweetness, a bold smooth fruitiness--a fragrant quality, but one that's matured, evolved. Finally, a tartness emerges--a counterpoint to the sweetness that brings complexity, wonder. Infusion after infusion flow, losing little in the way of complexity, body, fullness."
