I need some help on brewing info for 2006 Guoyan Nannuo Pu-erh Tea Cake.
This has been my second session useing it and I just can't get it right. I read around before buying and heard some good reviews so I suspect either Im doing something wrong or maybe I just don't like sheng which would be funny because I really love my shu from puerhshop. Its the 2006 Changtai Banna Tuocha.
The first session I think I used too much leaf probably 6-8g maybe even more in my 100ml gaiwan. I started with 20 sec. infusion which was really bitter obviously and then 10 sec and 5 sec and it was still bitter and not good.
Second time tonight I weighed out 3g in 100ml gaiwan. I didn't heat my gaiwan before the first infusion so I did 15 sec first and then 10s after and it still was bitter and not good. I infused it 4 times tonight.
Did I mess up somewhere? How do you guys/gals make this tea?
