This tea a finicky to say the least, but worth the hassle. I first tried this type of tea in a tea shop downtown. I loved the subtle fruity note. So I had to buy some of my own, but at a more reasonable price. It took a lot of time playing around with the temperature and time to find what worked for me. But once I did, I was sold. It is also good for multiple infusions, and grandpa style if you prefer. If it tastes rubbery, try again. It takes patience to find that sweet spot.
