Fuding

'Eastern (Fujian)-style' white teas are cultivated closer to the sea, amidst a mountain chain, which surrounds the town of Fuding on its northern, southern and western sides, to the east the land drops to sea level, creating a distinctive, horseshoe-shaped landscape. Fuding experiences a mild, wetter maritime-influenced climate, with a less extreme temperature range than some inland white tea production areas such as ZhengHe.

White Tea

The key steps include; 

Wei Tiao 萎凋 - Withering

Shai Qing 晒青 - Sun drying

Hong Bei 烘焙 - Finishing bake (low temperature)
