"Congratulations to Upton Tea for adding this 2014 pre Chingming selection. I ordered 2 more packets. This PiLoChun tea is fancy - tightly balled with some visible tiny white buds. Unfurls in my glass teapot to reveal bold dark green leaves. Pleasant aroma. I followed the brew guideline after brief 10 second pre-rinse. Second steeping I refrigerated. Both pleasing. A keeper!"
