The new growth of a tea plant is known for having the best flavor and fragrance, so this style of white tea—comprised completely of individual leaf buds—is justifiably prestigious. It’s handpicked in early spring, when the pale silver buds are still covered in fine downy hair, and originated in Fujian Province.

This version is comprised completely of individual leaf buds– handpicked in early spring, when the pale silver buds are still covered in fine downy hair, and originated in Fujian Province. It has a wonderfully aroma, reminiscent of an almond croissant, balanced by a classic herbacious note. Lingering flavors of baked goods, lemon, and bean sprout are punctuated by a sweet cinnamon spiciness that is enhanced on the second infusion.

Very delicate flavour

This is a tea best drunk without food accompaniment. Delightful flavour is more for afficionados rather than for casual enjoyment.
