This Chinese white tea from 300 year old trees, is a special treat.
Very pleasant to drink, it has a dense flavour profile that is sweet and ripe with a long lasting after taste on the palate.
The leaves for this tea have been withered in the sun and in shade, and then steamed and hand-rolled into small 200g cakes. Looking at the cake you can see that not only young, fresh leaves, but also older, larger ones have been used.
The body-feeling is energising, intense and pleasant, it goes deep.
