I totally botched brewing this at first because I tried to brew it using my newly acquired gaiwan. Note to self: practice using the gaiwan with cold water before using it with boiling water. I have used the gaiwan a couple of times fine with boiling water, but I found myself fumbling it when having to deal with the short steep times.
It’s quite a few steeps in and a few times I had a mouthful of nastiness for the above reasons. The last 40 sec. one resulted in a light honey infused brew with no astringency and a lingering sweetness. These relatively young green puerh can be very touchy, but give them some time and attention then they turn out to be just fine.
