Young purple leaf tea really does well with lower water temps and/or very short steepings. We have two coffeeshops that sell this tea like hot cakes but they use a little less leaf and brew at 195. We like this with 160,175 degrees and brewed up farmer/grandpa style. Purple leaf can be super strong and have those bitter notes for several more years than the regular sheng pu’er. Try at some lower temps and see if you don’t have a different experience. Grateful, Garret
