Yes, I have had the unfortnate experience of purchasing tea as a response to the "oh awesome, look at the tin!" The old adage is always correct - "if it is too good to be true, it typically is". The english call cookies biscuts, so I am assuming they are just butter cookies righ? :D

Ahh.. #18 is Dong Ding style ? I'm not saavy enough to know it by taste... but I love #18 I just knew it as a "Jade" oolong.. ordering quantity soon.

Last time I had #18, I thought it was more green than Dong Ding "style," more like Jade or a typical green rolled Taiwan oolong. But I only had it once.
