Strong, yet cozy. Dark leaves signal “terranean” potential. Timber and shrubbery in aroma. Light in weight, but textured in mouthfeel. Cup character of a leaf pile and warm toast. Excellent tea for changing seasons.

Produced June 20, 2022 by Mr. Huang Hai Qiang in Fuding city of Fujian province – the home of white tea. It’s a “Bai Mu Dan” (translation “White Peony”) white tea which is defined as a 1 bud, 2 leaves pick. This particular lot was made from the Fuding Big Hair cultivar growing at approximately 1,500 feet. It’s withered fully in-house and after drying it’s rested one month before roasting it. Roasting white tea is not common, but the additional step removes some of the grassy character and gives it a slightly fuller and toasty appeal.
