Does the shu one brew up to a dark, opaque tea?
I have had the Puerhshop 2000 CNNP Bulk Mini Bricks, which are OK if you give them a solid rinse first, but I will not reorder them. I have been looking to replace some very nice mini tuos that I got a couple years ago from China Gifts but which are no longer in their stock, so I am excited about these.
Yes, at 5 minutes Euro style it is pretty dark. I did a second infusion today also at 5 and it was almost as dark and tasty. The third one I increased to 8 minutes and it's okay, but I probably should have gone to 10 - 12. As I recall I did a 4th infusion for 20 minutes the other day and it was still drinkable. Gong fu style it is very, very dark and opaque.
Your Pu tastes, however, may be too developed to find this mini acceptable. But it's a cheap one to test out for yourself.
I considered getting the mini brick, but went with these two instead. From your comment I'll pass on it next time, too.
As I recall, YSL has a couple of mini's he thinks well of. Has anyone tried them?
