    The new 2021 harvest is here!

    The Wu Family's Shou Mei is picked from mature wild-arbor Da Bai varietal tea bushes on their high-elevation biodiverse plot. Their generously downy Shou Mei is a combination of young leaves and buds. This year's 2021 harvest includes some small fuzzy buds alongside the mature late spring leaves, brewing up balanced and refreshing - great both for sipping all afternoon or enjoying as a cold brew iced tea.

  • 'White tea is one of the easiest ways to discover the effect of buds in the taste of tea. Most teas on the market are made with leaves, which have amore robust intensity to them. Some teas are made entirely or partially from buds which have a very different flavor and texture to be aware of'
