Good value, but still a very special tea. by V Lukyanov 09 Oct 2005
This is a very cheap Wuyi tea and you might expect less than what you get. Though some shops provide very heavily oxisidised Traditional Da Hong Pao teas at a very similar price they have nothing in common with this lovely and beautifully creamy tea. Everyone will notice something special about this tea, a sweet and pleasant aroma that comes out when the tea is steeped. I noticed that oversteeping is possible without due experience, especially if using a small teapot, but it is not too difficult to get it right with this tea.

Overall, price and taste combined this is a wonderful tea.
