Brewed gongfu-style in yixing pot reserved for Oolong teas. I do not rinse Oolong teas, so I did the same here. Brew times were: 30s, 40s, 1m, 2m

I agree that this is an average tieguanyin – the color and smell are lackluster and the flavor is flat. It was hard to extract much from these leaves and I stopped after 4 steepings.
