I don’t know if I did something wrong but I got almost nothing out of this tea. The wet leaf had a nice light orange peel scent but I just couldn’t find it in the taste. Otherwise it was a pretty generic shou, clean tasting, nothing impressive. Color of the liquor wasn’t too dark, I’d say more of a caramel color. I intentionally left the last few infusions (8-10?) sit upwards of a minute and a half. The last one I totally forgot and it probably steeped for a good 10-15 minutes. Still nothing.
I definitely have to revisit this at some point. I’ll have to experiment with more leaf, boiling water instead of 95C and longer steeps right from the start. I’ll also have to get my hands on another chenpi pu-erh for cross reference. So far I’m just not impressed.
