This tea has a pale green liquid and a faint hay aroma. It has a light body with flavors of hay and cucumber. It also has a nice sweetness to it. I liked the Organic Nonpareil better, but at over twice the price I didn’t think it was over twice as better. This is a very good white tea and one that I would drink again.

Flavors: Cucumber, Hay

Preparation
180 °F / 82 °C 5 g 5 OZ / 147 ML

I love the look of this tea, it is a large 8 gram rolled up ball of white, yellow, and black leaves. I couldn’t help myself and steeped the whole ball, even though it is more tea than I usually steep at one time. It steeps darker than most whites I have had, but it has the honeydew haw flavor of a good white. There is also the subtle flavor of a young raw pu-erh on the back end. It is a tasty tea, which is nice because I was worried that it was just trying to get by on its looks.

Flavors: Hay, Honeydew

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 8 g 6 OZ / 177 ML

This tea is a medium oolong with a light amber color and a nice sweet aroma. It has a pronounced honey taste and is sweet but not overpowering. It has a velvety texture that makes it feel like I’m drinking a warm glass of honey. There is a hint of floral flavor that comes on a little stronger as the tea cools.

Flavors: Honey

This tea is greenish amber in color and has a vegetal hay aroma. It has an interesting flavor of hay, veggies, and caramel. It is kind of like a mix of a green tea and a dark oolong, which is something I haven’t really tasted before. It is not something I would drink all the time, but I am glad I tried it.

Flavors: Caramel, Hay, Vegetal

I got this tea as a sample and just to try it I steeped it western with the 5 g sample pack in 8 oz of water, which is not my normal method. I was only going to do one steeping and I was not sure how long to go, but I went with 2’30". The tea has the aroma of a light raw pu-erh and a similar color. It is earthy with a background flavor of plums.

Flavors: Earth, Plums

This white tea has a deep amber color and an aroma of hay. It tastes of hay and wood and it is a little soapy. I found the 2011 cake to be much better.

I get a malty aroma from this tea. It has a mild sweetness with flavors of wheat and brown sugar. It is a good cup of tea, but not one that will make it into my regular rotation.

It has a nice sweet hay aroma that I get with most white teas. There is a really pleasant sweetness to this tea with flavors of hay and cucumber. It has a strong flavor and a lingering aftertaste that is delightful.
