My second ever Pu-erh, and first to brew at home. I found it bitter, but not unpleasantly so. Had a bit of an earthy buttery flavor. The first steep after a rinse was light in flavor, and then got stronger as the ball unfurled. By the 8th steep, it was back to the light flavor of the first steep. I enjoyed the lighter flavor more than the deep bitterness & astringency of the middle steepings.
