thank you for your emails, yes i’m still drinking… tea… just v busy with whole lotta other stuff

cleaning out closet before tea delivery… found an “old” sample from ZGC

Zhong Guo Cha (review)(product link)  G-4-1-1 Bird’s Tongue (Que She) * sample  … 50g /$29 = 16.5/oz = 264/lb

Method: 170F & 208F + 2oz x .5 & .5 & 1min

Flavor: (likely not as good as when fresh, so not having comparison here’s what i got:) start with some long jing then ends with fruity (what do i mean ? …  and some fruity fermentlike notes) and a little sweet. very nice. low then medium yet pleasant type of tannin/astringency.

Overall: this seems nice as a introduction, leaf ok. price not for me.
