I am thoroughly enjoying this tea. My first time using a tea cake. It is as stated a high quality fermented white tea perfect for the novice.
This is the best Shou mei I have tried so far. I can definitely taste the notes of honey and apricot. This is the tea I brew for friends who say they don’t like white tea, and they usually love it.
I'm not the biggest fan of white tea. It has a lot of health benefits that women enjoy but taste wise...eeh. Bai mudan is the best out of all options. The flavor profile is complex and evolving. I used a raw wood fired pot with 180° water and the difference between brews was outstanding. I like it and will be drinking more of it.
I am enjoying trying all the teas I received. The flavors of each are subtle and one as good as the other. What a treat to find your shop with these wonderful teas!
