I picked this up at the local Chinese Grocery store today. It was $2.10 for almost 2 oz. How could I pass that up? This is actually pretty good. I gave it a quick wash in hot water and then steeped it for a couple of minutes. It’s floral, a little complex, and has some of that toasty chinese restaurant oolong flavor that I like. There is also some fruity background flavor I haven’t identified yet. For $2, I’m pretty impressed.

Oh, and the container is gorgeous too.

Update – getting a little grassy flavor as it cools.
