An excellent introduction to the world of aged white tea! This 2013 Shou Mei cake now has a good amount of age on it, developing that deep, fruity, and fermented aroma that can only be found in aged white teas.

Fresh white teas are grassy and soft, but this flavor profile is transformed dramatically by aging. Here you'll find a surprisingly deep and mature flavor that gives a lot to think about. A fantastic tea for both everyday sipping and deep pondering. 

In China, aged white teas are said to have potent health benefits, particularly for immunity. The greater the age of the tea, the more potent the flavor and benefits.
