    • Yunnan Da BaiTea Varietal

    This spring harvest pre-Qing Ming tea is traditionally scented and made with Da Bai varietal white tea. Unlike most jasmine on the market, this white tea is not sprayed with artificial oils or aromas. Instead, it is dried together with fresh jasmine blossoms scattered among the buds, allowing the natural aroma of the jasmine to absorb over several days into the tea itself. The process of adding fresh wild Yunnan jasmine blossoms is repeated six times over six days to get a full rich and creamy infusion that holds its intense sweetness and natural potency over many steepings. The creamy dessert-like Yunnan silver needle white tea is the perfect delicate pairing with Lincang's local luscious jasmine, a true labor of love.


  • 'This is a classy jasmine tea. The aroma of fresh spring jasmine tea is always deep and sensual, and this year’s aroma is decidedly sweet and candied – delicious jasmine and lilac, spun cotton candy and vanilla'
