I’ve been meaning to try this one for a while. Would you describe it as a gentler Xiaguan or does it still kick a bit?

Surprisingly pretty mild. Tell you the truth I was afraid to try it but was curious at the same time. If it would be unbearable I would just dump it. I used small chunk( no scale yet). Brewed in glass gongfu pot not filled to the top, 200F and 5 sec steeps. I steeped it today started yesterday. Increased time to 1 min. Still very pleasant. Some peppery smoky notes, but nothing extreme. I noticed I was kind of sleepy last night after it which is a plus for night drinking

That sounds good. I will put it in my wish list for next time.
