I like this tea, and today seemed a suitable time to brew some more.
To start with I am always pleased with the sight of the leaves, extra long, slightly twisted, and a nice dark colour, mottled enough to show it has not been over roasted.
Five Star do a thorough labelling so there can be no confusion as to the tea I am using.
The Foil Pack is resealable, and fits neatly without any trouble into these cheap Tea Canisters that I purchased in Kuala Lumpur last year.
Double Lid with both inner and outer lids fitting quite tightly, they were remarkably priced at 10 Ringits, or 8 Ringits if you buy 3 or more.
I sheepishly enquired
if the price would come down further if I bought 5 or 10 or 25? No! Even if I bought 100 it was still 8 Ringits each
I settled for 3 brown, and 3 red in a very similar design.
I went for 5gm in one of my Zhuni Shui Pins, just over 100ml.
The leaves slid in very easily , a couple needed to be helped to fit in by teasing them under the rim. But even now that I am halfway down the pack there seem to be nothing but intact complete leaves.
