Da BaiTea Varietal

This autumn 2017 picking is a unique harvest from the Wu Family’s biodiverse mountaintop plot near Wuyangcun. Similar in leaf to bud balance as Shou Mei, but picked after summer instead of before, this "White Dew" white tea is deep, rich and green, with big florals and a vegetal heart. While Bai Mudan and Bai Hao Yin Zhen are sweeter and more aromatic, Bai Lu White tea is more flavorful and rich, making it an excellent entry to understand the terroir of the region and the flavor of the actual Da Bai cultivar.
