Especially having moved back to NYC, I chuckle whenever I glance at the "gourmet" tea displays... packaging, packaging, packaging...

fake taiwanese spring and winter high mountain oolongs can fool me every once in a while because I am too hasty
Sometimes I get over excited and buy suspicious teas when I am in a local tea area without even tasting... :| really my fault...or just taste the first couple infusions and make up my mind to purchase...shifting my attention to another tea to try

Some high mountain tea gifted from taiwan, nice nice, maybe a little too acidic currently, time to try some different water with this one

Hey, maybe Mr. Trump picked that tea himself, by mouth, and placed it into a basket held between his breasts...
