Very good, but not for me.

I first came here for the TMNT pizza box sampler for my wife, then stayed and purchased 4 kinds of aged teas to explore what I liked and what I want to purchase more of in the future. This was the second variety I tried and it is a really great tea, but it is not the tea for me. I did as previous reviewer Kamille suggested: I looked up how to brew properly before using any of the aged teas I purchased and used a gaiwan and a small teapot purchased from my local Chinese grocery for all of my teas. I am new to brewing this kind of tea, though, so while I followed the directions and process I watched from YouTube sources and read about, I could probably have better technique.

Floral and very, very bright with long, full leaves. Beautiful green-y to yellow-y depending on the infusion. Smells amazing! I did a flash brew to rinse and ended up getting somewhere between 10 and 12 infusions before I stopped using it. I could definitely have gotten more infusions out of this, but I was done and ready to move on. The mineral-y-ness didn't start to come through for me until the 3rd or 4th brewing when the brightness and astringency had calmed down a little bit. The floral "sunshine-y-ness" never relented in this one and while I can appreciate those aspects, I definitely preferred the dark assertiveness of the cooked puer that I tried first. My wife, however, who really loves oolong teas and white teas, enjoyed this one immensely. Maybe I'll cultivate an appreciation in the future.

Aromatic and fresh

This tea is a bright tasting white tea that maintains a beautiful palette, even on multiple infusions. Highly recommend looking up how to brew puer tea properly for the best tasting experience.
