Much in agreement here.

I was disappointed as it seemed awfully light. Now I see that you are using almost exactly twice as much leaf, and getting the sort of results I crave. After 4 infusions last night, should I just add leaf to the pot tonight and proceed from there? Or would it be more fair to the tea to just start over with the heftier dose. Decisions, decisions.
In any event, Goose, thanks for sharing these important details just in the nick of time.
Is everyone using this much leaf for everything? Maybe upping the dose this much might change my feelings about a number of things. I think especially of those engaging by light cakes by Mengku Shuangjiang!

Hope you don't mind that I have added your review to the PuerhShop review thread. IIRC, Jeremy and Tenuku both had good words about this cake and Wesli wrote quite a positive review of it HERE. All of this leads me to wonder what I did wrong in the single session I have had with this tea so far. My best guess at the moment is that I didn't use enough leaf. Will hop to it again tonight.netsurfr wrote: Got a large sample of this from Puerh Shop.
