Since I have seen some Dong Ding whose flavor is undermined by Si Ji Chun, I generally have a negative impression about Si Ji Chun. But this tea is very good, I think, because it's a post-winter harvest. Leaves are generally small, and therefore don't have harsh chemicals accumulated in them. It is a very good example of Si Ji Chun.
It doesn't give much more than 3 or 4 infusions. But the first a few infusions are very nice. The fragrance is subtle, closer to the green tea way, yet still the unique oolong style of floral taste.
