I don’t know anything about pu-erh, but I like this one. The first few times I brewed according to the package: 5-7m, 212F. This made a dark, coffee-like cup that smelled like leaves and dirt in the fall, but in a good way. Even brewed this long, it wasn’t bitter or astringent.
Now I’m trying short steeps at lower temperature and it’s much better. Still the same basic earthy taste, much lighter though.
