Great to enjoy it light, but much better when it is well infused to full strength either in conventional or gongfu approach. Use 90°C water to begin with. If you think it is too soft or if you want more aroma, increase the temperature maximally to 95°C.

Cutting away from the main trail towards the more visited Zhongxin Yin and Lizai Ping, hidden away behind a spur, there is the quieter Wudong village Danhu. Shaded on the north of the dark rock mountain, it is cool here even at 4 pm on a summer day. The tea forests here are mostly made up of bushes 2 to 3 meters tall. Occasional 3 to 5 meter ones, each occupying a circular clearing around them, grow gloriously with their wide-spread crowns. Tiny patches of vegetables grown here and there under tea trees. The few families here have been tea farmers since their grandfathers remembered. As to when the old bush for our Song Cultivar have been here, no one can really tell.Net weight: 40 g (1.4 oz) in Kraft-alu pack
