This is a large leaf varietal picked in early spring. Covered with white downy hairs, the bud and leaf is slightly wilted and gently dried with warm air. This pleasing white tea differs from other whites because the processing creates the conditions for a tea that ages like a fine wine, with the passing years slowly turning it to a black tea. A light, sweet, full bodied flavor with a smooth and easy palette. Honey notes abound in both aroma and flavor! Simao District.
