    • Yunnan Da BaiTea Varietal

    This winter-harvest white tea grows semi-wild in Yunnan. Xingyang Workshop has pressed the buddy leaf material into discs divided into single-steeping wedges for convenience and aging. Yunnan Da Bai varietal white tea has the potential to take on incredible depth and texture from its surroundings, and as a wild arbor harvest, this tea is packed with herbaceous mineral-driven complexity. Perfect to enjoy now or age for years to bring out deeper darker flavors and aromas.

  • 'We were surprised by the amount of medicinal spice in this tea. We got a ton of anise, licorice and camphor flavor. As the tea steeped out, the cooling quality continued to grow, accented by herbaceous rosemary and sweet lemon peel flavor. No matter how long we steeped this tea, we always got beautiful results.'
