Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this tea.
The flavor is light. There are undertones of sweet and bitter to it. I’m not finding the bitter to be an unpleasant bitter though, it adds dimension to the cup. A very interesting cup.

Taste the difference!
100 monkeys is a premium grade, loose leaf white tea from China.
This rare and exotic white tea will leave even the most discriminating connoisseur with a smile. You will enjoy watching as the tea leaves unfurl and return to their original state.
White tea is really a subclass of green tea, however, due to its recent acclaim, it has been given a class of its own. The major distinction is that white tea is not mechanically processed. Buds and select leaves are harvested and merely air dried.
This minimal amount of processing can make white tea have up to three times more beneficial antioxidants than green or black tea.
100 Monkeys is our best selling white tea. Buy this rare white tea wholesale and save even more!

I brewed this one a bit strong, 5.7g of tea to 12oz water, due to finishing off the last bit I had.
Again the scent is strongly tobacco and something faintly, beigely bitter. -But again, not unpleasantly so.
The flavor is very much the smell but with the addition of a light sweetness. The finish is lasting and roasted tasting. There’s also a berry quality to the roof of the mouth and nose when swallowing when it cools some.
Again I like this but probably won’t buy it. It’s tasty, quality, but doesn’t hit my “wow, gotta have!” button. I’m glad that my husband bought me the sample to try, it was very pleasant.
