This is a good choice if you like oolongs with a toasty and sweet taste. It does not have an “earthy” taste. I am experimenting with Yxing teapots and I used 10 grams to make about 48 ozs of tea. I did this with a rather large teapot that holds 10.5 oz. This might seem a bit large, but the leaves did eventually expand and take up most of the volume. I started out with a 15 second steep (using water at 212) and added about 10 seconds to each succeeding steep. I got 48 oz after about 8 steeps, and the leaves would have yielded more. So this tea isn’t quite as pricey as it seems. The flavor was rich and delicious.

This is excellent and as the vendor’s note states, you can taste that it is starting to age.
