Description

Description

Premium Shoumei White Tea Cakes are made from tea leaves farmed in the Taimu mountains of Fuding, China. They are plucked later in the year than other white teas, making them a darker shade of green than most white WellTeas. This contributes to their mellow yet fruity flavour, with acute notes of herbaceous in every cup.

Once plucked, the Shoumei White Tea leaves are prepared the traditional way. of being dried and withered in the sun. They are then stone moulded and pressed to create the 350g tea cakes. Resembling birds’ nests, the tea is pressed into cakes for both the ease of transportation and for storage. While Premium Shoumei White Tea can be brewed and enjoyed immediately, the tea cakes can be stored in a cool, dry place for years or even decades. Like a fine wine, this will improve its taste and value over time, with aged Premium Shoumei White Tea cakes fetching a high price from devoted steepsters.

Grown in the Taimu mountains of Fuding, Shoumei White Tea Cakes are grown in idyllic conditions for white tea. The high altitude and cool temperatures enable the leaves to develop a stronger flavour similar to that of lighter oolong teas. When brewed it also creates a bright golden colour in your tea cup, which can be enjoyed in a mere 15 seconds and then steeped a further two times to enjoying the mellow flavours or this perennially underrated white WellTea.
