Zhong Guo Cha G-1-12-3
50g(1.76oz)/$4.99 = $2.83/oz (! cheap, lets see if taste is cheap).

Dry leaf looks good, has a golden hue (ok maybe not, i think im color blind today).
~2tbsp dispenser + 4oz gaiwan.

infusion reveals bits and pieces, seems this is the normal Huang Shan Mao Feng appearance.

150F – taste: flavor medium-low strength: green pan fried oil sensation.
did 3 infusions = 12 oz.
not enough flavor strength for me, seems less than HSMF (hair tip) from Chado. but this one is not hair tip.

200F – taste: flavor medium strength: green pan fried oil sensation. + deep astringency-bitterness. (duh! what did you think boiling water would do to a green leaf???).

will have to redo, more leaf, temp 160-180-190
