Yunnan Da BaiTea Varietal

This unique tea is made with Da Bai varietal (Camellia Taliensis) white tea. Unlike most jasmine on the market, this white tea is allowed to dry with fresh jasmine blossoms strewn among the buds, allowing the natural aroma of the jasmine to absorb over several days into the tea itself. The final product is not mixed with jasmine flowers or oils but has a more potent, balanced and natural aroma than modern style jasmine.

" 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.... "
