I've tried this tea every which way in the months since I bought a 1oz sampler, trying to get SOMETHING impressive out of it. Today, I give up. There's nothing unpleasant about it--it's light, sweet, not smoky, and has a very floral aroma with hints of green grapes lingering in the background. Brewed, though, it's weak sauce--thin, a poor translation of aroma to liquor, and very little punch. I hate to be a negative Nelly, but I just can't believe that this tea has the oomph to age well. If it cost $25, this tea might be worth it, but considering XZH's premium prices, it just isn't. Much as I love the brand, this one's quality doesn't match the price tag. You're better off with the less expensive 450g Nu Er Cha, or the Xi Shang Mei Shao. In my opinion, they're both worth the price.
