"This tea was definitely a surprise. I came in expecting something similar to Pai Mu Tan and received something completely and wholly different. This tea is a bit darker in flavor than many other white teas, reminding me of a sweeter light oolong. The liquor color is darker as well, again more like an oolong. Not that this is bad, though; I liked the tea. It's just a bit weird."

"I have made this a staple in my house. It is well balanced and smooth with an earthy sweetness that carries fig and date notes. Stands up very well to multiple infusions and is very forgiving." Jeff Banaszak

"Quite unique - the brew has a very sweet taste, almost sugary. Overpowering notes of cavendish pipe tobacco in the nose and liquor give this tea a radically different profile. Overall it's sweet, delicious, and smooth with lots of tobacco flavor."
