I tried the overpriced dancong I got yesterday. It’s not bad. I used slightly less leaves than I should, but since I didn’t want to overbrew it, I played it safe. It seems like I can stick a little more in. The tea is less aromatic than the stuff I usually get at the Best Tea House. However, the cha qi is quite strong. I could feel it going around my body as I drank the first cup.
I am now boiling my pot for wuyi tea. It’ll be ready soon so I can start feeding that too. Between all the pots, I think I’ve got almost everything covered — everything I will likely drink in Beijing anyway. I might need one more for very young puerh, but that’s about it.
