Laoshan White & Tea Blossoms
An experimental white tea from our friend Mr. Tang’s small oceanside family tea farm. The leaves are dried naturally, kissed by the air and wind, and combined with hand picked blossoms from the same tea trees.
In the spring of 2016, Mr. Tang visited our common friend Hunter in the wild mountains of Zhenghe, Fujian, where white teas originated from. He was inspired by the pureness of white teas and when he returned home, he decided to experiment with white teas from his own tea farm. Fresh leaves are picked in the autumn season, and crafted with traditional methods for white teas: natural withering and sunlight drying for 48-60 hours.
White tea is the most “natural” tea - no direct heat is applied to the fresh tea leaves during processing, thus preserving as much of the antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and living compounds in the tea leaves as possible. As white tea ages, its medicinal benefits increases; as the saying goes in the old days, “three years a medicine, seven years a treasure”.
This tea is sweet, earthy and gentle with hints of honey and green plums.
