I am so happy with this tea. I ordered it during Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, so it took about a month to arrive from China. The main benefit that I see from ordering directly from Yunnan Colorful on Ebay is that you get very fresh tea. When you add the water, it seems like the leaves come back to life. This one has whole leaf tips which I chew on sometimes. Also, I like that the money I spend is going directly back to China and not to a middle-man company. After getting to spend some time in China, I have a great deal of respect for the people there and understand that for the vast majority, they still live a very traditional life. Rice fields right outside the villages, vegetable gardens in the front yard….or where ever there is a little bit of land.

I have had two successful orders through Ebay from Yunnan Colorful now and am saving up for a third. The communication is very good with this company and the free samples are GREAT!

Have been drinking this tea for 28 years. Good on a cold day when I want to relax with a cup of strong tea.

A friend from China gave me a small tin of this tea. I now have a larger tin at home and one at work. For the price….$6.39 for one pound, it is a good Jasmine tea.
