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
These delicate silver-colored needles - yin zhen 银针 - are completely covered by soft white fur - bai hao 白毫 -, which is rich in amino acids, making this tea particularly fresh. However, the two years of aging tone down the natural astringency of the buds, leaving in the palate a gentle mellowness, and a creamy aftertaste.
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.
