Illumination - Aged Bai Mudan White Tea - Fujian Province- 1.5 oz
This stunning floral sun-dried tea comes from Northern Fujian, China from a small organic farm. The varietal is a late spring harvest Cheng He varietal, which comes from the name of the tea town in the north. The leaves are roughly 15 years old, with a blend from different years. The brew is forgiving and easy to prepare, ideal at 200 degrees, though you may enjoy experimenting with water temperature to learn the effects. The age has yielded a mature leaf, so a higher temperature is necessary to break down the cell wall. We are overjoyed to find a truly organic white tea, which is a rarity from this region.
