Type: da bai white
Origin: Fuding, Fujian
Known for its delicate taste, white tea is harvested before the tea plant’s leaves have fully opened. The young buds are still covered by fine white hairs, giving it its appearance.
The photos show the tea liquor and leaves at a young age. After aging as loose leaf for three years, they are compressed into ball-shaped teas by hand. It tastes of floral honey, with a viscous and smooth texture.
Cultivated from the birthplace of white tea, this white tea is the lowest in caffeine compared to other varieties.
