This was in the latest issue of Tea Magazine. Does that look like a beeng to you?

It's hard to tell is it a nest? Tou?

Could be a minibeeng, imo.

Most of the minibeengs that I've had did not have a dimple. At least, that I recall...

The wrapper in the picture also looks like the typical brown-yellow parchment-like wrapper that shows up on a lot of XG tuos.

Sorry for the poor photo quality. I hurriedly scanned the magazine and compressed it to meet the attachment limitations. It's easier to tell from the whole, original picture that it is a tuo. I think Drax is right about the XG color, though I'm not seeing any XG wrappers that match the "fleur-de-lis" looking border in the picture.

Other companies use them for tuos as well, such as Nan Jian. But I've only ever seen them used for tuos, and not for beengs.
