This is one of those local Asian supermarket teas that people tend to fall for. Someone gifted this to my mom, who didn’t like it and so stuffed it in my luggage when I left for college because options here are limited and you make do with what you’ve got. I don’t know how old this stuff is, and it’s not like there’s any indication anywhere on the box (I attached pictures of the box to the listing), but this is weak tasting to begin with and lasts no more than 2 infusions regardless of leaf:water ratio to boot. Being sort of whole leaf, psychologically it tastes better than tea dust and fannings from bagged tea I guess. I drink this when I’m desperate for caffeine (the nasty usual coffee supply machines were removed for COVID safety concerns) and as a digestif of sorts I guess. I’m glad to be almost done with it, and grateful to live in an era of mass online access and globalization that allows me to purchase tea from a variety of vendors and not just the local supermarket.
