Shou Mei 2012
An aromatic, earthy, sweet and soothing tea, reminiscent of autumn foliage. One bud, two to three leaves and the stems are used. It has aged beautifully and graciously for 9 years.
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"
It is mild, sweet and earthy; a calming tea to drink at home with a book.
