Da BaiTea Varietal

This stunning limited pressing of the Weng Family’s finest Silver Needle Da Bai varietal white tea is a gorgeous to watch slowly unfold over many steepings in a gaiwan or glass. This 2017 pre-Qing Ming harvest is made exclusively from tiny fresh buds. These buds are beautifully small and plump. The early delicate picking is very downy and intensely sweet. The pressing protects the downy buds and locks in a deeper thicker texture.

" Instead of reverting to pesticides and fertilizers like larger factory farms, Weng Wenkan grows soybeans and canola around his crops. The insects prefer the beans and leave the tea mostly unharmed. Growing beans alongside tea reduces total yield per acre, but increases biodiversity and provides natural insect management. All of this makes his tea taste better... "
