I was told that they had already figured out what happened, reshipped my order, and to just keep the bag of high mountian oolong i got by mistake!! I've never had high mountian before so I immediately put some in my yixing and gong fu'd the hell out of it. This tea is deliciously complex with a sweet start for 4-5 infusions slightly getting astringent as you progress. Its pretty forgiving with temperatures and gave me a delicious vegital/slight umami nearly every time. Who knew a mix up could be such a great suprise!
