This rare and unique white tea bears the meaning of longevity (寿 shòu in Chinese): 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 aging process that still continues in the delicate leaves, whose curved shapes recall a dark eyebrow (眉 méi). 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.
Origin: Fuding, Fujian province Flush: Spring 2012 Storage:the leaves can be stored in their original package or in ceramic vases. Avoid heat, light, and moisture.
