Tea Tasting Notes

White teas flavours vary from the delicate, cooling and nuanced hints of grass, spring water and birch sap of silver needles,  through to the warmer, dried fruit notes of the shou/gong mei. Especially with the Bai Mu Dan and Shou/Gong Mei grades, as these age, the flavours deepen further. Our 2004 aged Bai Mu Dan white tea for example has flavours that are medicinal (TCM), root and spice like.

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

White tea production process is the simplest of all teas and although white tea does undergo oxidisation unlike green tea. However the process does not include any rolling nor, traditionally a final drying 'bake' to halt the oxidisation process.

The key steps include; 

Wei Tiao 萎凋 - Withering

Shai Qing 晒青 - Sun drying

Hong Bei 烘焙 - Finishing bake (low temperature)
