First time Yunnan Pure Gold Ning'Er Simao

I have bought a black tea from YS, it is their highest grade black pure bud, and I noticed that the seller said within the description of a Mojian Simao pure bud that you should keep first infusions short.
How should I brew this tea for best results, I generally brew my tea> 5grams to 100 ml, flash rinse, 30 s, 20 s, 40, 1 min, 1 m 20s, and so on, or 20 second first, 10 s, and raise it with 20 seconds later on, or I brew puerh 10 seconds for first 4 brews, or I brew 60 s, 20, 40, 1m20, and so on, what is a general approach a black tea drinker would make, I could also brew for 5 minutes, like 3 grams to 200 ml, what gives best results, I own 100 grams so I want to experiment.

That seems like a good start for yunnan buds, they can get kinda bitter when overstepped (not to mention huge caffeine jolt) so long minute infusions may not be the best unless you lower the leaf/water ratio significantly, but with the buds I miss a lot when not using more leaf

I received the shipment and I tried it, first of all it looks amazing, gold dust all over the packege, and little golden buds, and the smell is very strong, tabacco, malty, almost whiskey like sugarcane, and you and YS were right you need to keep first infusions short like under 10 seconds so you can enjoy the fruity aroma and not get the bitterness, generally I used the normal gaiwan 120 ml and 6 grams, that is my normal ratio, and short initial brews.
This tea is obliously high quality, perfect even buds, all golden.
