    The Weng Family was able to set aside a small amount of their fresh harvest to age for three years to demonstrate the incredible difference that aging makes in white tea. This pre-Qing Ming silver needle white was aged in airtight conditions to yield a much darker sweeter brew. The aroma is still reminiscent of fresh-baked bread, but a much darker sweeter whole wheat loaf. The vanilla is even stronger in the aged Bai Hao Yin Zhen, and is accented by sarsaparilla, brown sugar and a touch of dried cherry. The downy buds make each sip thick and creamy. This is a real treat and a great example to show the value in aging white teas under the right conditions.


  • 'Instead of reverting to pesticides and fertilizers like larger factory farms, Weng Wenkan grows soybeans and canola around his crops. The insects prefer the beans and leave the tea mostly unharmed. Growing beans alongside tea reduces total yield per acre, but increases biodiversity and provides natural insect management. All of this makes his tea taste better'
