I have decided it will be interesting to check which black teas do you use the gong fu style methood as opposed to using the usual western style.
I have found that in the black teas area the subject isn't very clear what is best (as opposed to preparing oolongs). I have found that many teas have better restults for me with the western style while many others teas have better results while gong fuing. imo, each tea usually have one methood that brings better results , and it chooses the methood it "likes" most.
By Gong Fu, I mean shorts steeps (up to 1 min), small brewing vessel, and high leaf to water ratio.
The tea that will have the lowest votes will be the black teas most people brew western style, and the ones with the higher scores will be the one people most gong fu them.
If you wish to add any tea to the poll, please add a comment.
