Kung Fu Black Tea #1
Gong Fu, same as Kung Fu, s the Chinese term that refers to great level of discipline or study in a particular in field. In case of teas, it refers to the skill required to make a particular style of tea. These type of teas have also been known in the West since the 19th century as Congou tea, a term deriving from the Gong Fu term. In modern terminology the meaning that is best ascribed to the term ‘’Gong Fu’’ in our opinion would be the English word ‘’ artisanal’’ as it indicates a tea that is made by hand tranditional and methods that require great skill and knowledge.The liquor has a dark amber color and a malty aroma, the taste is very balanced and smooth with no astringency or dryness, there are malty and floral notes, a woody edge and satisfying long finish of cocoa and rose. The taste is sweet, think of molasses and caramel with hints of fruitiness, an excellent choice for a breakfast and as an afternoon refresher tea.
