Yunnan Da BaiTea Varietal

This exquisite offering from Wang Yanxin combines the very best of two of our favorite teas- Yunnan White Jasmine and Golden Fleece. Huge buds are picked from Yunnan Da Ba, a varietal normally used for white tea. These buds are allowed to fully oxidize into black tea, but during oxidation and drying, wild jasmine blossom are strewn among the buds, allowing the natural aroma of the jasmine to absorb over several days into the tea itself.
