These days tea grades don't define the quality of the tea, it really represents the size of the tea leaves.
If you see a tea from the same estate that has different grades, try one from each different grade (if budget allows or if they have samples).
Good luck :D

OK thanks for telling me how the tea grades do not define the quality of tea.

I think they use a different grading system in Sri Lanka.
