Fantastic tea. This is my latest discovery. The seller is new on EBay, but knows her teas and actually tastes them before selling. Shuangjing is everything a tea lover would want from good green tea. The taste is somewhat between Biluochun and Mao Feng. The tea leaves resemble Biluochun, but it is not just Biluochun tea, but much, much more. The taste is very subtle. You get slight smokiness at start followed by a mellow taste of roasted pecans and ending with the Crème brûlée as the base note. The trick is to use water just hot enough, but not too hot. When the first large bubble comes to the top, the water is ready. Too hot or not hot enough water and you will get entirely different impression. 35 seconds for the first steep should be just fine. The tea is good only for two steeps, but this is typical of many green teas. I am learning to be generous with myself.
