Grandpa style and cold-brewing were mentioned briefly at the end. Would you elaborate on the suitability of brewing these teas in those styles. I am curious about this as they are the ways that I tend to brew the cheap(er) teas. Thanks.
Sorry to comment so long after this was posted, but I had a question. Which Chinese grocery did you get the red “ta hung pao” at? I just got back from a trip to Seattle, and scoured the international district looking for that stuff. If I had a specific target I could stop by on another trip. (I live in Olympia, and am up in Seattle pretty frequently.)
Actually I just found some today! The Chinese herb shop about three blocks uphill from Seattle Best Tea, I think the name is Gom Hong.
Interesting to note: while nobody else seems to have sea dyke da hong pao, pretty much everyone has tins of sea dyke roasted tie kuan yin.
