Product Description Herbalists Comments Supplement Facts and Ingredients
Suggestive of honey with a smooth, round mouth feel.

Grown at the higher elevations of the Guo Shan Mountains along the coast of Fujian Province, this tea was made popular by Buddhist monks who cultivated fields surrounding their monastery. In time, the tea became a source of revenue to support the monastery as well as providing stimulation for the monks during sessions of meditation. A white tea varietal minimally processed and using the full leaf, this tea is one of China's most natural teas. Note the slight yellow leaf coloration. This results from the leaves absorbing moisture in the days leading to harvest.

Tasting Notes
With minimal processing, the result is a mix of light-to-dark green leaves that are delicate, quite fragrant, offering a liquor suggestive of honey with a smooth, round mouth feel. White tea offers a lingering sweet aftertaste. This tea is refreshing and light and it goes well with baked goods and foods in general.

Brewing Suggestions
A rounded tablespoon or 3-4 grams per 8-12 ounces of water will yield a full-bodied cup. Use water in temperature range of 185-205 F and steep for 2 to 2.5 minutes. If you drain the water from the leaves, you will get additional steeps.
