Sugar White - 白蜜香

from 15.00

Category: White

Origin: Lugu, Taiwan

Harvest: Spring 2018

This organic white tea is an experimental tea turned out incredibly delicious. Our farmer in Taiwan crafted this for us using the traditional method that intensifies sweetness and depth. Each leaf was hand-picked at the 900m elevation hundred year old tea garden.

This White tea is made with Chen’s Oolong tea leaves. This tea went through 100% handmade process: from harvesting to controlled dehydration. A proper dehydration allows the tea to gently oxidize as it dries. The end result is a clean, honey sweetness with a hint of floral note. This tea exhibits the depth of an Oolong, while retaining the brightness of a White tea.

Tasting Notes: sweet honey noted with a hint of floral
