Angel's Comment:

Prominent pekoe aroma with a hint of jujube and flowery flavor.

This white tea cake was picked in 2017, and is as such a relatively young white cake. The liquor brews a light, bright yellow with a sweet jujube fragrance, and a smooth taste. The scent grows with later infusions, and the floral flavor begins to come out beneath the pekoe aroma. This tea also retains a bit of a grassy taste due to its short aging time. It is perfect for a cold winter day, bringing you a warm comfort.

Tea Garden

Chaitou Shan Tea Garden is located in Fuding, which is known as the hometown of white tea. The plantation is almost always blanketed with fog, providing the perfect conditions for the tea bushes to accumulate a wide variety of microminerals and nutrients. The soil here is rich red and yellow in color, signifying an abundance of important organic material. The tea species mainly grown here is the Fuding Dabaihao variety.

Tea Bush

This cake is made of the leaves of the Fuding Dabaihao plant, called Dahao for short. It is a small tree that propagates asexually.

Fuding Da Hao Tea Tree

In 1985, Dahao was certified as a national variety of tea plant. It grows up to 2.8m tall with a thick trunk. The tea from the spring leaves of the bush contains 1.8% amino acids and 28.2% tea polyphenols, which marks it as a high-quality base for making white tea in particular.

History

Tea has been grown in Fujian for centuries as an ever-important staple of commerce and trade throughout ancient China. Originally, the process of drying the leaves was followed by a variation of hot-air drying and sun-drying, a meticulous step intended to remove excess water from the leaves to ease the preservation process and preserve the tea for sale.
