Angel's Comment:

The 100g specially-made small white tea cake by TeaVivre carries obvious pekoe aroma and refreshing sweetness, suitable for collection.

The raw leaves for this white tea cake were picked in one of the core areas of white tea production in Waizha village, known locally as Chaitou Mountain. The net weight of the cake is 100g, which is considerably smaller and lighter when compared to the usual 350g or 357g white tea cakes, such as our Fuding Shou Mei White Tea Cake 2012 and Fuding Shou Mei White Tea Cake 2014. Because of this, it is very easy and convenient to carry regardless of where you are.

Upon drinking, the liquid is sweet, soft, and smooth, and carries a clear pekoe aroma; if this tea is stored and left to age for longer periods of time, it will soon develop a mellower, richer taste.

Tea Garden

Chaitou Shan Tea Garden is located in Fuding, the hometown of white tea. The plantation here is always surrounded by fog, creating the perfect conditions for the tea bushes to accumulate a rich array of microminerals and organic nutrients. The soil is red and yellow in color, signifying that it is rich in organic material. The tea plants growing here are mainly of the Fuding Dabaihao variety.

Chaitou Shan Tea Garden

This area experiences a subtropical monsoon climate, characteristic of coastal areas, with about 1840 total hours of sunshine through the year, and an annual average temperature of 18.5C and rainfall of 1661.6mm.

Tea Bush

This Shou Mei white tea cake is made from the leaves of the Fuding Dabaihao plant, also called Dahao for short. It propagates asexually and takes the form of a small tree.

Fuding Da Hao Tea Tree

In 1985 it was certified as a national tea plant variety, and can grow up to 2.8m high with a thick trunk. The spring tea from this bush contains 1.8% amino acids and 28.2% tea polyphenols, marking it as a high-quality base for making white tea.


Tea has been grown in Fujian for centuries, as it has always been important for commercial purposes and trade in ancient China. Originally the process of drying the leaves was followed by a meticulous variation of hot-air drying and sun drying, in order to remove excess water from the leaves; these methods eased the preservation process and helped the tea to sell. The leaves of this naturally-dried tea seemed to appear like the Shouxing’s, the longest-living man in mythology, long curved eyebrow (眉毛, meimao). As a result, people named this tea Shou Mei.
