Default Teavana Tung Ting

Another one of those slight of hand teas ie something from nothing.
This is a better Tung Ting than any I got from TenRen in SF Chinatown.

The whole leaves are smaller and younger than most. The older leaf
becomes more krinkled. The wet leaves are the sixth infusion. Youre
probably looking at the comparable 2-3g of dry leaf. I think their
price reasonable for what you get. There are commercial Taiwan TT
about half the price just as good but you need access to a Chinatown
and still no guarantee.

PS I like tea alliteration.
