I measured the longest dry leaf before I put it in a pot, it was 3.5 inches long! The leaves actually fitted into my Fujigata, but I had to arrange them standing up like a tipi. It was fun to play with my food! (Don't tell my mom!)

I just got my first order from them in last friday. I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but it looks interesting. The cups are amazing from them.

I would love to compare teas from the source verse domestic importers but the time it takes in shipping puts me off a little. I have heard orders from china taking weeks...
