The brand new, 2021 vintage of Yunnan White Buds tea from the Big Snowy Mountain (大雪山, Da Xue Shan). Due to the extraordinary weather of the early spring in Yunnan, the tea trees could develop amazing large buds. This outstanding size of the buds is truly rare, it happens once every ten years only. The amazing, huge buds have a velvet-like feel and beautiful color. Yunnan White Buds 2021 is a real specialty, we’ve never met like this before.
The making of the white teas is very simple, however, to make extraordinary white teas, need extraordinary material and the special skills of the tea master; picking, withering, drying. Thus the result is a gently sweet, flowery tea, which has strong energy because of the 200-300 years old tea trees. It has a nice calming effect, so it could be a great choice for an afternoon drink also.
