The Weng Family was able to set aside a small amount of their fresh harvest to age for three years to demonstrate the incredible difference that aging makes in white tea. This pre-Qing Ming silver needle white was aged in airtight conditions to yield a much darker sweeter brew. The aroma is still reminiscent of fresh-baked bread, but a much darker sweeter whole wheat loaf. The vanilla is even stronger in the aged Bai Hao Yin Zhen, and is accented by sarsaparilla, brown sugar and a touch of dried cherry. The downy buds make each sip thick and creamy. This is a real treat and a great example to show the value in aging white teas under the right conditions.
