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.
Whenever we have someone who is new in tea, asking for white tea recommendations, this is the tea we always recommend first. This white tea might not as famous as a Silver Needle White Tea, but for a fraction of its price, the flavor and value of this tea often surpass the former.
It's true that Silver Needle White Tea might be the most popular white tea among tea drinkers, but Silver Needle tends to taste a little too mild for most people. This white tea is like drinking a refreshing sweet plum juice. The stronger you brew the tea, the better the flavor becomes. It never gets bitter or astringent.
Origin: Fuding, China
