We have really been enjoying our 2017 BMD. After learning it had a high(er) grade counterpart, I was very curious to try and find out what would be improved upon a tea we were already very pleased with. We decided to name them Grade 1 and Grade 2 because we feel it would be a disservice to label one of these any lower than high grade. Along with this cake being easier to break apart, there is a bit more of a refined tasting experience. It has a little more noticeable boost of chi ("qi"). So, please give them both a shot and decide for yourself if grade has a direct connection to the amount of enjoyment in your cup!
