I really wanted to like this tea. "Camellia Sinensis" has a very good reputation and I'm a huge fan of Jun Shan Yin Zhen. Unfortuantely, while this particular tea is GOOD and has a near-excellent value, it isn't GREAT. I steeped 2.5g at 190F for 3 minutes.This tea is known for being mild in flavour yet even with this standard I found it to be somewhat dull. A resteeping under the same settings had a reversal of an effect; the tea was now too astringent and tannic for my liking. However, like my other instances with Jun Shan Yin Zhen I find more than 2 cups gives me a long-lasting energy and focus that, whilst not intense, was definitely prevalent roughly an hour after my last cup. In short, I like how this tea makes me feel and find it to be a useful functional food.
