Spring 2017 - White Tea
This Yunnan Bi Luo Chun white tea is the smallest pure bud tea grown in Yunnan. A varietal that is a cross between the classic Jiangsu Bi Luo Chun and Yunnan large leaf varietal, yielding a delicate Bi Luo Chun that can grow in cooler high altitude conditions. The aroma is high with hints of fruit and fresh grass...
A unique varietal of white tea grown in the high altitude mountains of Ai Lao range in the eastern part of Jing Dong County (Simao Prefecture). The tea processing is something in-between white and green tea. It has a strong thick aroma and hints of sugarcane and wheatgrass.
High quality hand-picked and processed silver needles (pure bud) white tea from Da Si village in Feng Qing county of Lincang. Slight cinnamon spice aroma and fruit when brewed. Thick and sweet. Very lubricating mouth-feel that stays in the mouth after drinking.
The buds are picked in early February and then sun-dried. The flavor is fresh and a little fruity somewhat similiar to a good white tea but more complex flavors. The brewed liquor is whitish and clear, and there is a hint of fresh pine needles in the aroma!
An exquisite pure bud tea made entirely from newly sprouted buds. This tea is picked twice yearly in spring and autumn for just a three day period during which the buds are consistent in length and appearance. The taste is malty with hints of fruit and cane sugar.
