looseleaf puer.
wet leaf contains mostly shred up parts, darker parts seem to be stems (alot of them), a bit lighter brown being leaves (not that many). I guess most of the bark taste comes from those many stems.

~~~ stress test~~~

hack gongfu tea technique with 1 foot water drop

10sec wash: cloudy brown liquor, tree bark nutty,
20sec brew: cloudy brown liquor, tree bark nutty, 5min wait
“10sec” brew: cloudy darker brown liquor, tree bark nutty, astringency starts to appear, 10min wait
“10sec” brew: same.

~~~ initial taste~~~

dry leaf looks regular, smells mildly of tree bark.

infusion 1tsp 1cup 190F 4min

liquor dark brown tint of red

taste: flavor 4.5/7, good, pleasant, almost completely tree bark as i sensed it. maybe a little nutty. minor medicinal taste. not that earthy, no bitterness, low astringency. did not cause me too much anguish as my first pu.

will do some reinfusions later.
