    • Da BaiTea Varietal

    This limited pressing by the Weng Family uses tea Da Bai varietal tea picked during the Han Lu (寒露) or "Cold Dew" period of the Chinese solar calendar. The night temperatures are cold enough to condense the mountain mist into dew, but not cold enough to create a frost. The unique early winter flavor is sought after for its deep complexity and sweet root vegetable notes. These weather conditions only come about once a year, and the result is a white tea with a thick body and rich flavor unlike any other.


  • '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'
