Great tea! Review by Rachel Miller
I brew it a little shorter than usual for a white tea. I was worried it would be to grassy but it's not at all. Crisp clean and light. subtle yet flavorful. (Posted on 1/29/2016)

Very delicate light flavor with just a hint of citrus and sweetness. It looks beautiful, settle and gentle. (Posted on 1/23/2016)

Subtle is the word for this tea. It's quietly floral, then gives way to a creamy smoke flavor. I don't normally like white tea that much, but I would recommond this one. (Posted on 1/17/2015)

Review by Eddie Thompson
The aroma of this tea is very lovely. Sweet and a touch fruity. The flavor is sweet with a subtle smokiness to it. Typical for yellow tea? Not sure, but I simply love it! (Posted on 1/5/2013)
