Alright, I’ve been playing around with it and the best flavor came on the second one minute steep at around 170 degrees. Nice and vegetal with a silky mouthfeel, a mineral flavor, and a trace of sweetness. There’s also a bit of a mouth-coating effect. Not mind blowing to me (that usually only happens to me with Japanese greens), but it’s very good. I just placed an order for the Yanxin’s Reserve ’04 Shu Nuggets, Yunnan Golden Buds, and Zhu Rong Black so I look forward to trying those.
