It will be up to the taster to distinguish three different grades of Dong Fang Mei Ren, and estimate the retail price they would have on our shop, for two of them are only available in this set. The third can be found here and enjoyed on its own—but we won't spoil which one it is! The set is suitable for tea beginners, but will be appreciated by the experienced as well.
