I decided I wanted something strong to drink so I grabbed this and dropped what was probably too much in my baby teapot. The first two steeps at 205f for 20s was entirely too strong for me… I ended up with 200f for 10s and it taste much smoother. I’m still a noob when it comes to pu’erh but I can tell that this isn’t the best but it also isn’t pu’er trash. I’m guessing it would be smoother with a smaller amount in the pot. Thankfully I have a 12 cup set so I was able to brew out 8 different timing on number of brew for this and found that after the 3rd brew it was enjoyable. I might just like more mellow style of shou though, I will soon find out as I explore more pu’erh.
