Wow. This tea is just super. It will be along with feng qing dragonpearls my staple yunnan black teas.

This time around i did westernstyle brewing in 220ml Zhuni yixingpot.
1: 1m @ 80C
2: 2m @ 85C
3: 2.5m @ 85C

First cup was devine, full of honey chocolate malty delight with very little astringency.
Second was a bit to strong. 1.30m would be better. But next time i will use 6g leaf.
Third i let the leaves cool down and forgot to remove lid. Kinda killed the taste. :/

A Beutiful tea!
