Depending on your preferences it worth experimenting with different water temperatures. Cooler 85c-95c yield additional sweetness, where as 95c-100c bring out some additional body and strength. Find out what suits you best.

Elegant...

Wonderfully delicate, fresh, and elegant. Really nice for such a great value tea, with notes reminiscent of some lighter Chinese Oolongs with green qualities. Very easy going with just the right amount of astringency. Could not ask for more for the price.
