Frequently Bought Together
The aroma is strong enough you smell it through the paper. Very pungent and sharp that peaked my curiosity even more so. Impressed with the packaging. They put it inside a sealed bag you can store to keep from light and potential moisture. The cake is about 4 inches in diameter. Full leaves, dark color similar to Puher leaves.
Tea liquor is very light at first in color and clean. The sharp aroma pulls through the flavor profile. It is an earthy sweetness, but with a tangy punch due to aging. Unique profile for a white tea. I've been on a white tea kick for a while.
But I was pleasantly surprised when I put the some tea in a warm pot to smell the dry aroma -- it was richer than I'd expected. And once brewed, the tea was quite lovely. Light, sweet, fragrant, with some nice complexity that lets you know you're drinking tea and not simply sweet water.
A very mellow aged white tea... great for everyday drinking, or even better, put in the closet to age a few more years
A quality Bai Mu Tan tea best steeped in distilled water heated just shy of a full boil.
It is pretty close to what we had in China. It is the first one on the top list of white tea that is actually what people would consider legit white tea in China. All the others are either not from Fuding China, or in tea bags that are not really a thing in China.
