PLEASE BE ADVISED: All Mei Leaf Flight boxes contain very small batch and exclusive teas and are therefore very limited edition.
Dive into the nuances of White tea! The perfect gift for yourself or a loved one, for beginners or experienced teaheads!
Tasting teas and educating your palate can be challenging because we tend to taste one tea in a session. By experiencing a flight of teas in a horizontal tasting, we can directly compare flavours and understand the nuances of different terroirs and production techniques.
This White Tea Flight box contains three top quality teas which have been selected for comparative tastings. These are all pinnacle Chinese Whites from three different provinces.
The box includes a card with the key differences between the teas which influence the flavour so that you can gain deeper knowledge of a particular tea type.
Once you have done a comparative tasting there will be plenty of tea remaining for individual tea sessions.
This box contains:
Elder White (Ye Sheng Ya Bao)
