1. Golden Shoumei Toucha 2012 White Tea
Golden Shoumei was hand-rolled into small toucha balls which can be brewed for an extended period of time. The flavor becomes fuller but never intense and is best enjoyed in a metal teapot. Low in caffeine yet full-bodied!
Bai Hao Cha
Maple syrup, Osmanthus
2. Jasmine Heirloom White Tea 茉莉白毫银针 2021
Native Bai Hao Cha varietal grown in Fuding from over 100 year old tea trees. Jasmine flowers are layered on top of the fully dried white tea buds and allowed to bloom in order for the tea to absorb the aroma and taste. The process is repeated until the desired strength of Jasmine is achieved and the taste of Jasmine will linger on the breath long after the tea has been drunk!
Bai Hao Cha Heirloom
Jasmine, honey, green bamboo
3. Organic Gongmei 2020 贡眉
A young white tea that retains the vitality and greenness of a recently made tea. It has more caffeine than its aged counterpart, but is still delicate and refined in taste. We carry Gongmei as part of our core collection because it properly represents our particular taste in tea. Our Gongmei uses a hybrid cultivar recently developed and then withered using traditional sun-drying methods. It is incredibly deep in flavor and aroma, without being overpowering.

Fresh bamboo, sugar cane
