This tea appears to be small leaves which
This tea appears to be small leaves which makes very excellent tea. The aroma, color and taste of this tea is much better than tea I have purchased elsewhere. Once hot water is added to the tea basket it is fast to color the water with dark brown color and the aroma is very nice. Also once steeped the taste is very soothing. For what it's worth I use a Kamjove tea pot when during my tea. I can not describe the amount of tea I use but it will make up to 4 great cups of tea from one amount of tea. It is said the tea should be washed first before drinking but to me that is a waste of good tea. This Pu-erh Tea is very, very good.

Very good quality if you enjoy this type of tea it
This is my first time trying this tea. I'm typically a green tea drinker. I really like it. Milder than my green tea. I just refrigerate the remaining parts of the ball and use them again.
