I drank several cups of this tea this afternoon at work and have switched to a green tea from Yunnan Colorful for this evening. I am on the second steeping and heating the water for a third.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 6 min, 0 sec

lol. What makes it ecological? The fact that it was grown in Nature like all organic things?

It is interesting to follow this company on Ebay. They are trying many different strategies to see what works best. Recently, they are offering free shipping on some products. “Ecological” is one of their more “creative” adjectives.

Indeed. I always love the “Eco” label applied to products as a selling feature. – sarcasm

Alas, I think that it worked as a marketing strategy on me. In my mind it implied that there were no pesticides used in the growing of this tea. I have no way of knowing that this is true or not, but it definately influenced my purchase. Eco or not, it is a wonderful tea. no sarcasm here….
