I don’t recommend the Western Method listed on the Teavivre website for this tea. I followed it as closely as I could, and ended up with the same headache and leathery aftertaste that I ran into with the Teavivre Balin GongFu steeped with its Western method. Steeped in this way, this tea has malt like flavor that reminds me a little of Guinness Draught, without the bitterness.
I will try the Chinese GongFu Way to steep my next sample.
For the first steep of my first sample, I cut the water amount of the Teavivre Western method for this tea to 2/3, since I had a sample of 6 balls and 1 little ball (so, a little over 11 oz). The tea steeped loose in a porcelain, 17oz teapot.
