Delicate buds shine of a silver hue when touched by warm water, and they open like a rare flower with the first infusion, releasing the gentle purity of Dabai cultivar
For our 2021 Baihaoyinzhen we have decided to choose this special selection from Fuding, completely sun-dried: it highlights the purity of its taste, avoiding any hint of fire and artificial heating.

These delicate silver-colored needles - yin zhen 银针 - are covered by soft white fur - bai hao 白毫 -, which is rich in amino acids, making the 2021 tea particularly fresh. 
It has the fragrances of a white tea, the clarity of a green tea, and the persistence of a young, tender shengpu.

The silver shades of the buds leave the way to the warmer tones of gold that characterize the liquor. As we continue with the infusions, an ever more intense floral note opens in the cup, offering lingering hues of wet roses, thyme, and linden honey.

The quality of the harvest is fit for an emperor, as only emperors could have the privilege of drinking the purest liquor of the youngest gems, still unripe and covered by dew.

Surprising Tea

Orderd this tea becouse I was curious about how sundrying might alter the taste of this popular white tea and was pleasantly surprised. While more commercial variant (who are moslty air dried indoors) have a more sweet taste with very little to no aftertaste this sundrying method gives a more complex and full bodied after taste and mouth feel. The description is right: it has a slight taste of a sheng puer but without the astringency you might have with a very young sheng puer. This is one of the better white teas on the market and is well worth its price! Also i recommend this vendor for its execelent packaging (every tea pack individualy packed), fast shipping (it only took a week to arrive from Italy to Belgium wich is faster then when you order from The Netherlands for instance) and execlent service with 2 costum samples wich gives you a change on trying a tea you didn't order yet. Very happy overall, would order again whenmy suply runs out ;)
