Wild Arbor Buds
Although this amazing tea is pu’er leaf buds, it is best described and prepared as a white tea since it is picked in the spring and onlywith and sundried. No other processing takes place.
The liquor is clear and the flavor is sweet and floral with hints of pine. Complex flavors and yet so simple to enjoy. Mild and pleasant. This tea is rare and beautiful, as fresh as spring! Learn more about white tea here. Choose from 2014, 2017 or 2018 vintage in the drop down menu.
