    There is a tea that got given got given to me about 6 years ago from a friend of a friend when they came from China visiting Sydney and I still kept the packet all these years wondering if I could ever find it again. It was the nicest Tea I have ever tried. The only problem was that the gold packet has all Chinese writing over it and I myself can not read Chinese. However, I managed to ask a Chinese lady what this packet of Tea said and she said it is a Red Tea and it says wuyi.? Is there anybody that can help me to find this beautiful Tea again, i am longing for this tea Big Time.
