Am now on the 13th steeping and am amazed. New aspects of flavors and layers of “colors” of taste in every steeping. This tea has changed my view of buying very expensive teas. I have been timing three minutes for each steeping.

I use water filtered through a carbon filter, and then through a Berkey water filter, with the added cartridges to remove all chlorine and fluoride.

I highly recommend this tea.

Here is the website, if someone can read Chinese:

I tried to find the teas I have on the website, using Google translator. As far as I can tell, they are not listed. The person who went to China and bought the teas at the shop, told me that the woman at the shop said that they carry hundreds of teas that they do not sell outside of China. If I find this tea listed somewhere, I will post about it.
