200F 4 oz, no wait between re-infusions (strain liquor to new cup, immediately re-infuse leaf).

5 infusions (20oz total):

1-2 dense, strong flavor: wood, tree bark, a little ‘aged’? feel, dark chocolate aftertaste astringency. wouldnt say earthy (which i’d associate with the smell of wet soil), not old books, just woody. fine with me!

4-5 less dense, more watery. little dark chocolate aftertaste. i still enjoyed it.

very nice.
Im generally not a fan of puer (since i never had one to like…until now), i dont know why i like this one but i do.

had some pears, drank little leftover pu from yesterday, first 1/3 of tongue feels like yunnan black, back 1/2 tongue like puer , nice.
