Description

Made up entirely of silky, fine buds, this Grand Cru is the most popular white tea in China. It is also one of the most subtle of its kind. These silver needles are harvested on Taimu Mountain in Fuding, at over 900 metres above sea level and are produced from the famous Fuding Da Bai cultivar.

A complex, subtle Chinese tea with floral, fruity and vegetal notes, which are mixed in to a oily texture. A superb classic.
