I have ordered this and will update after tasting. Wanted to share some info about the museum that accepted this tea blend as mentioned above.

National Tea Museum, Hangzhou, is located in the Zhejiang Province and opened in 1991. It is a very large museum, showcasing some of the aspects of history of tea in China, in fact, it has an area of around 5.4 acres, but the construction area is around 0.9 acres. This museum is a first, that is this museum is about the only museum in China with tea as its theme. The most interesting part of this museum is that, there are no external walls, but the enclosed vegetation gives the impression that tea and vegetation here is interdependent. Be sure to observe closely the one hundred distinctive characters (Chinese) which are related to tea.

Lover of fine coffees, micro-beers and now exploring teas. I have two french presses, one for coffee the other for tea.

Have worked at a steel pipe & tube factory, a foundry, as a public school teacher, as a hospital chaplain, as a church pastor, as a mental health counselor/caseworker and now as a basic industrial mechanic for a large weld shop. Don’t know what I want to be ‘if’ I ever grow up. LOL
