This is the second of these Shui Xian Pillows I’ve tried from Hello Teatime. It was not as good as the “Pleasure” series one I had before. I used the whole 8g in my 100mL gaiwan with boiled water, and the flavor was pretty shockingly weak. There was some nice and sweet floral flavor, but not much else, and it wasn’t too strong. After making it through 8 or 9 steeps, I dumped the whole 8g into my 12oz mug which I use for grandpa style, hoping I could pull some more flavor out of the leaves this way, but the strength was no greater than when I was steeping it in the gaiwan. Not sure if this one just happened to be a bit old or stale or whatever, but pretty disappointing compared to the previous one I tried.
