The Weng Family cultivates Da Bai varietal bushes on the misty peaks above Fuding using traditional sustainable farming techniques and meticulous processing.
This limited harvest is picked by commission only 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.
Bean plants grow among the tea plants for better biodiversity and pest control.
