Angel's Comment:

Individually packed into 5g/cake biscuit shape, easy to carry out, brew anytime and anywhere.

This Fuding Shou Mei White Tea Mini Cake was harvested in 2018 and pressed into mini cakes in 2020. Each piece is about 5g, which is convenient for storage. It not only saves the trouble of prying tea, but also convenient to carry regardless of whether we are out or working. After more than two years of aging, the tea nature of this tea has become mild. The aroma is mainly pekoe and woody. The tea liquid is sweet and soft, with sweet and jujube scent. We believe that it will get better and better along with years.

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. The leaves of tea dried in this way were often compared to the eyebrows of Shouxing, the longest-living man in mythology. It is from this myth that Shou Mei earned its name, from the Chinese for “long curved eyebrow”, 眉毛, or ‘meimao’.
