Normally, White Tea leaves are loose and not practical to carry around. For practicality, they are shaped into compressed round cakes. When brewed this tea presents a pale yellow-orange color of liquid like our Silver Needle tea, but with a richer taste. As the year pass, the tea gets smoother and sweeter with a soft finish and mellow taste.
An old saying about tea that stems from Fuding Town claims that: Tea is just the beginning, 3 years later on it becomes medicine, and after seven years it ends up being a treasure. Every sip of aged White Tea Cake should be enjoyed and valued
teabeau’s organic 2012 Fuding Shou Mei White Tea Cake is of exceptional quality, produced by a gold medal-winning plantation in Fujian, and excellent growing conditions imply that this tea has an exceptional clean pekoe-scented fragrance and taste.Teas shaped into round orbs just improve with time and given that just a little surface area of the leaves is exposed to air directly, the oxidation reaction is sluggish as well as and promotes fermentation on the within. The procedure and shape of the tea offer it a more enticing fragrance when it’s dry, a more appealing colour when it’s liquid, and a more mouthwatering taste.
