Angel's Comment:

Chamomile Rose Silver Needle White Tea is the best choice for white tea lovers who like white tea’s delicate taste and floral sweet fragrance taste. This tea is a good balance of both.

Certification:

Eurofins Certification

This tea is a combination of Fuding silver needle white tea, and rose and chamomile flowers: the first fragrance you notice is that of the rose, while the first taste is the chamomile. The refreshing flavor of the white tea serves as an excellent accompaniment to the floral scent, and with such a rich flavor, this tea will definitely satisfy your thirst.

This tea has many health benefits too, mainly during the summer due to white tea’s ability to relieve heat, and chamomile’s calming properties to cool you down from the inside out. It is believed in traditional Chinese medicine that white tea, rose, and chamomile all have beneficial medicinal properties.

Tea Garden

Meishan Tea Garden is in Liubo Village, Fuding City, Fujian Province at an elevation of 650 meters, along the leeward slope of a mountain and with a sunny natural environment. The local people here hold that the back of Niujishan where the tea garden stands has rock-weathered soil, with no chemical fertilizers or pesticides used - meaning that this is an excellent natural environment for cultivating tea.

Tea Farmer
Tea farmer Mr. Lin

Mr. Lin has been a professional tea farmer for over forty years. Born to a traditional tea family, he has been deeply ingrained in the culture since childhood, and ended up building his own tea factory. As his factory gradually grows, he continually attempts to seek a common development between the tea enterprise and the tea farmers themselves.

Mr. Lin believes that the hardest factor to overcome is the weather: if leaves suffer from bad weather, then the result will be a reduced yield with lowered quality. During cold weather the leaves are covered with straw in order to prevent them from frosting; this is one thing that Mr. Lin has learned throughout his years of experience.

His first priority is to strictly control his products’ quality and ensure its reputation. Mr. Lin, together with his tea factory, will continue to provide high-quality tea and regularly increase the number of factories that do so.

Tea Bush

The material used for this white tea comes from the Yunnan Large-leaf tea species, originally sourced from Yunnan and nowadays planted in Fujian, Sichuan, and Hunan Provinces, among others. It is one of the highest quality tea tree species in the world, excellent for producing not only pu-erh tea, but also gree, black, and white teas as well. Research shows that this species contains a high content of tea polyphenols, catechinic acid, and amino acids.

History

Floral scented tea has a very long history, running back to the Song Dynasty in 960 AD when people added a natural flavoring, kapur, into tea. Though kapur is not a flower, the principle of the flavoring is the same as today’s flower-scenting processes.

Floral scented tea was not massively produced until the Qing Dynasty, around AD 1850. By 1890 it had become a regular drink, and following the founding of new China, its production area expanded and yearly output increased. Nowadays Fujian Province is the top producer of floral scented tea in China.
