Angel's Comment:

Rich pekoe flavour. The tea liqour is soft and mellow with a long sweetness in the mouth.

This white peony tea cake was picked before the Grain Rain and pressed into a cake with one bud and two leaves. Relatively speaking, the temperature before the Grain Rain rose somehow, so the leaves of tea trees grew faster. Then they were accumulating more abundant substances inside. Therefore, its tea buds are fat, which makes this tea cake more resistant to steep and more flavorful.

 

Uncovering the packaging of cotton paper, the plump pekoe buds are densely distributed inside and outside the tea cake, and the pekoe flavour comes along. Take a closer look, the dry tea is tinged with a faint scent of flowers. After brewing with hot water, it will slowly stretches, and the floral fragrance begins to slowly release. Its tea liquor is apricot yellow. Pekoe flavour and floral fragranceare intertwined along with soy milkaroma. Besides, it tatses sweet, thick and delicate. From beginning to end, it all gives a soft and smooth feeling. I believe, after a period of aging, this tea will bring you unlimited surprises.

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.

History

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.
