Our Bai Hao Yin Zhen is a white tea from the original area of white tea, and is picked and produced entirely by hand. The tea consists of a very early harvest of the finest buds. Authentic white tea is produced only in the northern province of Fujian, and Bai Hao Yin Zhen is produced only in the Zhenghe and Fuding areas, and should then have been made on the subspecies dabaihao. Since white tea is the least processed of all types of tea, terroir and picking proportionally have a greater impact on the finished tea. During production, the buds are laid out one by one on round bamboo trays and dried outdoors in the shade, under the master's careful supervision. Then a final heating takes place to ensure that the humidity level is sufficiently low. The silvery, downy buds give a clear infusion with fresh notes of melon, a light herbaceousness and a delicate nutty sweetness. The taste is extremely clear, round and smooth and the tea can handle exceptionally many brews.
