Very good tea! I did not expect much from the Ebay vendor, but the price was right and I thought to myself ‘why not’. I was nicely surprised. What a tea! Extremely fragrant, with complexity of flavors rarely seen today. The first brewing produced nice orange color and aroma reminiscent of aloes wood. Quite a treat. Must buy more! But let’s see first what happens at the next steep.

Aw man I have that one too. It blew me away the very moment I took a first sip. It’s somewhat pricey though.

Not really, the price from Rebecca is quite low. It is really a nice tea and the best for the price. The secret is not to use too hot water, but just below the boiling point. I wait about 3-5 minutes to allow for cooling. Another thing is never to steep too long, or the tea becomes bitter. But you probably know all this. Rebeca also auctions 1oz. bags starting at $1. If you are lucky you can win a nice sample for few dollars.

I did bid often and still have a few unopened packs somewhere around, but just recently Rebecca told me that she doesn’t ship to Bosnia anymore…bummer. I have an unopened bag left so I’ll try it gongfu style – so far I was brewing it with boiling, 3 min, single steep, so it’s expensive for my standard, unless I’m trying to win low in auctions.
