I used 7g, and after a rinse, I brewed it for 60s, 60s, 90s, 120s.
The leaves after the rinse have a fairly strong menthol or camphor smell. Even with the long 60 second infusion, it's not very harsh at all. The camphor smell in the leaves didn't come out much into the tea. It has the usual floralness. The second infusion brought out a lot more flavor, as well as bitterness and astringency. There is a fairly strong camphor taste, and some floralness. There isn't much smokiness. The third infusion had a stronger camphor taste, and also has a good amount of smokiness. Still has floralness, and maybe some hay-like flavors.
I'm not sure if this would be a good one to age. Obviously my lack of knowledge when it comes to puerh is the reason why I don't know, but I'm not sure if this is strong enough to age. I brewed it with 60 seconds which is longer than normal, and it still wasn't very harsh. Also, the tightly compressed tuocha will age very slowly.
Does anyone know where the leaves were harvested? Hou De doesn't list the harvest area.
