what don't you like about the dth lishan?
how many infusions do you get with gongfu brewing?

What color is the tea when poured?

its not that i disliked it really..just not quite my taste in flavor profile. I was looking for that more buttery profile. this has a bit more of a roasty flavor than others ( more like typical chinese greens if that makes sense?) i have had. the leaves are not as bright green..more dark when dry.
yellow /brown colored infusions.
i dont gong fu ..more quasi western so i steep about 6 or 7 oz at a time. I typically get 4 or 5 or so that way before i move on.
no pics but i could take some tonight
