From white2tea

Stored in dry/natural conditions in Fujian from 2013-2018, this baicha [white tea] from Fuding county in Fujian province is considered to be Gongmei grade white tea, which has more buds and higher grade leaf than a Shoumei.

The thick, soothing body of this tea is smooth and calming, with heavy dark fruit fragrances. This tea can be prepared a wide variety of ways with excellent results. Gongfu style brewing will yield a lighter colored soup and boiling will produce a thick red soup. This tea is very versatile and suitable for further aging or drinking directly. One of our best value aged white teas.

Cakes are roughly 360g and are not packed in tongs. This tea was stored in Fujian in dry/natural conditions after being pressed in 2014, using 2013 material. The tea is white tea, also called baicha from Fuding county in Fujian province.

I realize I have a ton of white teas from W2T that I’ve not tried before, so I think over the next month or so I want to prioritize getting through some of those samples. Starting with this one, which was just arbitrarily picked…

Steeped in the evening on a work night, so a shorter session – still like five to seven solid infusions though! It was thick for a white tea, with red fruit and hot summer hay notes. After the third infusion or so, the end of the sip picked up this wonderful molasses-y brown sugar taste as well! Also had a bit of a raw spaghetti squash kind of component to it as well, which was unique and took me a fair bit of time to really nail down and identify.

A sweet and woody tea that has a nice syrupy, slick texture. There are flavours of brown sugar, peach and in the finish also citrus zest. The aftertaste is long, throat-cooling and very fruity with notes of persimmon, peach and cinnamon. It’s a nice and very comforting tea, that doesn’t stand out as anything special to me though.

Complex and enjoyable. Intriguing balance of sugar syrup and woodiness. Multidimensional.
