Thanks for the info! Yes, indeed, the "engrish" text and the cheap-o packaging do suggest that something is not as it should be
But then again - that's what happens when ordering things on eBay. I guess you get exactly what you pay for.
The leaf itself comes across to me as very thin (under 1mm in diameter) and small (1-1.5 cm in length) compared to almost anything I have tasted - looks almost like fir needles. Is there any particular tea that matches this description?
Unfortunately I am still not experienced enough to identify it by its taste - however, brewed at 80C it doesn't taste too bad!
