I third that. :)
One great thing about these "nuggets" is that you can't oversteep them. I put a very tiny chunk (~1g?) in my thermos every morning, and fill it with boiling water. Then I drink it on the bus on my way to work. Thick and sweet! This is my only true every-day tea. 500g goes a looong way like that.
Another great thing is, if you gongfu it, this one can last like 20 infusions. Just ask InsanityLater. ;)
Ok, now back to trying to finish yesterday's pot of LBZ :)
