2015 Organic High Mountain White Peony Cake ( Spring )
An old Fuding town saying about tea claims that ‘tea is only the beginning: in three years it becomes medicine, and in seven years it becomes a treasure’. Every sip of an aged white tea cake should be savored and valued.
Benefit to compressing into a cake is how it aids in natural oxidation, for which the shape of the cake is preferred over loose leaves. Only a small surface area of the leaves is directly exposed to the air in a tea cake, so the oxidation reaction is slower and more even, and promotes fermentation on the inside of the cake. The crafting process and shape of the tea give it a more enticing aroma whendry, a more attractive color of liquid, and a more savory taste as well. This "White Dew" white tea is deep, rich with big florals sweetness. The sweet clover-like flavor with a very refined honey or cream texture marks the signature of High Mountain Baimudan.This refined and elegant brew is a beautiful expression of both the land and the precise, demanding craftsmanship of the humble Fuding tea farmers.
