Da BaiTea Varietal

This 2016 pre-Qing Ming harvest is made exclusively from tiny fresh buds. These are the smallest and most plump white tea buds we have ever seen. The early delicate picking is incredibly downy and intensely sweet. The aroma is full of fresh baked bread, while the brewed tea is creamy and vanilla-heavy with fresh fennel notes and a touch of citrus. Perfectly balanced, sweet, lingering and impossible to oversteep. This is a perfect example of the elegance of silver needle white.

" As we've come to love in years past, the aroma of this fresh spring tea is deep, forward and sensual - jasmine and lilac, banana and vanilla bean, confidently balanced. The flavor reminds us of delicate rose candy, then unfolds into honeyed fruits. Later steepings build in brightness towards melon or sweet strawberry as a lovely vanilla citrus sweetness builds and lingers.... "
