This is an aged tea. It brews up a dark orange color. It had little bitterness in the initial two steeps then bitterness emerged in the third steep. It is a strong in your face sort of tea. Unfortunately, it also had a pronounced sour note to it. I do not know if I brewed it wrong but it was sour in character throughout ten steeps. On the plus side it had none of the unpleasant aged character teas often develop and the sour note may be a matter of having used too much tea. I will refrain from giving this a rating until I get a chance to try again.
I brewed this ten times in a 120ml gaiwan with 10.5g leaf and boiling water. I steeped it for 5 sec, 5 sec, 7 sec, 10 sec, 15 sec, 20 sec, 25 sec, 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min.
