Still yummy. Good for multiple infusions, too. Tiny glass gong fu teapot works well. (100ML)

Exquisite. Simply exquisite. Use a tiny porcelain gaiwan to brew this silver needle and heaven is yours.

Still good. But what a difference from Chinese teas!

Interesting stuff. Hmm. Need to spend more time before rating.

Oh man. My first sips, but already this is amazing. Very smoky. Need to spend more time before doing a proper rating.

I prepared this with a little more leaf, and nutty/creamy notes emerge. Nice.

This was a surprise. The leaf looked both small and somewhat broken, and I didn’t detect much of a nose on the infused leaf. However, the flavor of the tea is much stronger than its nose would suggest, and I think this could make, as one reviewer said, a good everyday drinker.

I think I’ve hit the sweet spot for brewing this tea. 3 minutes.

Still a stunner. One of my favorites. Creamy and mild. Maybe a little too mild, but still wonderful.
