"This tea is a bargain! Just like the description says it has a light fruity aroma and flavor but also a thick, buttery, mouthfeel typical of this area and teas across the border in Yunnan. What I really wish Upton Tea would do is teach the Gongfu method. I used my kyusu, 10 grams of tea and 8 ounces of water. My first steep was only 20 seconds and I'll get at least 3 more.Much more subtle."
