The virtually endless succession of re-infusions that this tea will bear without complaint or injury, even as the water cools down, just proves the sovereignty of the green Chinese teas from the mountains of Yunnan. A highly cultivated appearance, the tips with their silvery down rolled firmly lengthwise. A richly grassy scent, an infusion pellucid to lightly green, and a health-giving taste with lightly intoxicating effects.
