This tea is inexpensive and very tasty. She implies it was made in the early part of the century but who knows. I don’t detect any fermentation funk so it is possible. It is good, nice and sweet. I will admit though, I was too lazy to gongfu this this morning and just western brewed it so I don’t know how far this tea will go. Judging from one steep, I like it. While I added sugar to my tea I’d say it was sweet before that. It has a sort of sweet flavor that sugar just doesn’t add. It is good. For the price I paid I am glad I bought it. She sells 500g for $17.99, a bargain.
I brewed this once in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 30 seconds after giving it a short rinse.
