I like to do fairly short infusions for this one, the astringency can then get mild and pleasant, while the tea still retains a lot of flavour and depth. That’s a sign of a good quality green tea. My recent choice was 60s (70°C), 15s (80°C), 30s (80°C), 45s (80°C), 60s (90°C), 120s (90°C), which turned out very well. Maybe I would cut down a bit on the first and last infusion.
Otherwise, the taste and smell profile is not very different from other chinese green teas. The nutty and buttery notes seem to dominate over floral and vegetal ones though. There is also more umami than one would find in Long Jing for example. The body is medium and the aftertaste is very sweet as expected from an astringent tea like this.
I definitely recommend the tea. It is one of those with which you cannot really go wrong, as long as you enjoy green tea.
