I really like this one. Have you found a way to brew it that you feel brings out the best flavor?
i give it a rinse, let it rest a bit, then short steeps in close-to boiling, but i aint got enough to really experiment much + i tend to go by feeling ..

It seems like all of the black teas from Taiwan that I've tried do fine with quite a bit of leaf and a long steep. I may try it your way to see what the difference is. I had been afraid to lower the time because I thought it might take some flavor away.
