The Wu Family’s wild arbor tea groves yield nuanced white teas thanks to established root stock, biodiversity, organic techniques, and patient and precise craftsmanship.
The Wu family’s multi-generational white tea plantings have grown wild and untended for decades, allowing the specific balance of wildflowers and competing plants to influence the flavor and complexity of their tea. The Wu Family likes to keep their Bai Mudan picked on each several mu plot separate so that the elevation, angle of the sun and balance of rock and trees can come through in the finished tea. Plot 3 tastes quite wild, with crisp complex texture, an energizing feeling, and big vegetal undertones. Plot 3 Bai Mudan feels closer than most teas to the smell and taste of fresh unprocessed tea leaves in the sun. The wild vegetal notes are a lovely compliment to rose undertones and a big rocky mineral texture.
