Good for the price.

They don’t call it the King for nothing

This tea. I should put 3 exclamation marks behind that sentence and call it done. However, I must carry on. First off it’s just pleasant to look at out of the bag, nothing like I’ve ever seen, and the aroma is subtle but perplexing both in the bag or in the cup. A hint of sweetness on the palate. I’m a pipe smoker and I must say this tea pairs very nicely with several of my tobaccos. It’s just a joy to enjoy. Hail to the Whistlers.

This is a really quality and worthwhile white tea. There's a natural sweetness to it that's difficult to compare to other things; so much better than sugar. No bitterness at all. It can also be re-brewed once or twice with nice flavor. This is one of my go-tos.

Overall review

When I opened the bag it smelled very delicate and also fragrant. The leaves were very high quality and when we went to make some tea I was impressed by how light the tea was. It was not astringent at all it had a light fruity taste as the description says. I would personally brew it longer than the recommended time they have on here because it was very pale the first time brewing it. You can rebrew this tea in small increments and it’ll hold up well

Lovely tea!

Throughly enjoyable. I can rebrewed it three times, two hot then one overnight cold brew.
