Probably not the best puer starting point, but got to start somewhere!

Hard to break apart. Leaves are pretty choppy. Actually I didn’t see a single whole leaf in the 5g I tried so far.

Single rinse. First step is pleasant but it’s easy to make bitter after that. Not sure if it’s my fault or the tea. I will use colder water next time; this water was close to boiling.

Even with the bitterness, it has a pleasant smokiness up front. At the end of the sip there’s a hint of a vegetal green tea taste, which I’m not the biggest fan of but that’s personal preference. There’s also a bite that lingers on the tounge.

I would like the smokey taste without the bitterness. I’m underwhelmed by this first attempt but hope that time and more brewing experiments will result in a nicer brew.
