More good advice! In fact it's just the excuse I needed to go back and try all my young shengs again. :) Thanks hop.

I have never tried brewing sheng with anything below 212F in the water department. This may be a terrible idea, what about trying a steep at 170F? Should I try this with 2003 keyixing yiwu pu-erh or is this the worst idea since chicken fried bacon?

One of the first pieces of advice I recieved when I first started was to try a sheng I found bitter and astringent again with slightly cooler water at around 190. A world of difference.

When it comes to pu-erh, it is all about adjustment. :D
