In comparison to our other Chinese white tea from Fujian province, the flavor and aroma of Yunnan white are much more pronounced and long-lasting, as it is made from more mature tea leaves which are harvested from a higher altitude. This high-quality white tea is grown at an altitude of between 1300 - 2000 meters, an ideal position that results in a deliciously complex tea you would not get under different growing conditions.
In making Yunnan white tea, the leaves are dried in direct sun. As a result, there is little or no oxidization of the buds. The result is a very smooth, light-bodied, gentle liquor with distinctive fruity, floral and light woody flavors.
In a cup, you get translucent, orange-golden liquor. It has a lovely soft mild taste with a fruity delicate bouquet. Yunnan White is incredibly fragrant and silky sweet, with a surprising depth of flavor that lasts for multiple infusions. There are notes of honeysuckle and baked apricot, with woodsy, herbaceous undertones.
The price is for one brick, 60 grams.
