I don't know much about Pu's yet but I tried a Raw(?) sample. I think I used too much and made thick brews (was the first time I used my gaiwan). It was really vegital and turned me off of Pu's for the moment. I know that it is one of many so I am not turning them all down, just putting them on backburner on my list of teas to try.
