This rare and unique white tea bears the meaning of longevity: its leaves were delicately harvested by hand in 2012, and the warm sun rays of Fuding slowly dried them, sealing their sweet honey aftertaste.

The infusion releases the lively taste of the fermentation process that still continues in the delicate dark leaves. This mellow taste of undergrowth, together with the natural sweetness of its processing as white tea, create a unique combination of aromas that open in the palate, and a mesmerizing scent that fills the air at each infusion.

Harvested in Spring 2012
