Angel's Comment:

The key fragrance note: sweet fruit aroma; the compound note is the green plum note, offering a soft and mellow taste.

This Shou Mei white tea, harvested in the early autumn in 2017, has been aged for over seven years and is now at its optimal drinking period. The dry leaves are predominantly yellow and brown in color, with some tea stems and white fuzz. After brewing, the tea liquid is clear and bright, with a strong red date aroma and a hint of herbal notes, as well as a green plum taste, offering a sweet and smooth taste; the aroma left at the bottom of the cup is long-lasting, including a unique woody scent. This tea has a good endurance for multiple infusions and can be brewed or boiled, making it suitable for drinking in all four seasons.

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 Master

As we all know, the world’s white tea is in China, and Chinese white tea is in Fuding. Mr. Chen was born in Fuding, Fujian Province. He has been influenced by tea since he was a child. It seems that he came with the mission of inheriting white tea culture from the moment he was born. He has been engaged in tea cultivation and production for more than 30 years, and has always adhered to the principle of "quality first" for many years. He is not only a successful tea industry operator, but also an excellent inheritor of white tea culture, allowing more people to taste and understand Fuding white tea.

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.


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.
