It's usually on this infusion I can really tell the character of the tea and whether it's been blended or not. The taste is so clear, there's no where for flavours to hide.

Any tips on successfully brewing Liu An Gua Pian. I've been have trouble getting a really satisfying brew: 6 oz water at 170, 3 gr tea, 3 minute brew. Just seems too subtle with a tiny sour taste, otherwise I like what's there. Just want more!
