This one has promise on it. Not bitter or astringent almost a saltiness to the brew with a hit of honey and lemon. I have been 9 steeps now and it has faded some. It brews golden light orange in color. I used 15 grams in the Gaiwan and steeped away. The first infusions were pretty strong with the good throat feeling. You could feel this a minute or so after drinking. The later steeps give a touch of soap maybe? Hard to tell for sure. A good sheng for $20.00.

How big is your gaiwan? Mine would be spilling leaf on the floor at 15g. No wonder my tea seems to last forever. I would normally have 3-4 sessions out of 15g. Too many years of western sized tea bag programming I guess.

Mine is a 110 ml I think. I do 3 infusions in a fairness cup to fill my big ol western cup. It is a 10 oz. mug. Course I drink a lot of pu.
