About this tea in Li Wen Hua's words (pardon my poor translation)
"Drink a bottle of honey water, water like candied fruit, you can drink tea with peach taste. Peach blue cake, the tea soup, good water, when the flavor, aroma, qi, power are melted in water, it becomes like heavenly nectar.
The pursuit of the peach cake can be expressed in terms of “fibre”. “Fibre” stands for delicateness, “秾” stands for plumpness (brilliant), and the combination of the two brings us into a heavenly realm."
