A special White tea commissioned from Old Tea Trees (100 years estimated) from Jing Mai in Yunnan.
We wanted to use traditionally Sheng PuErh tea leaves to make a Yunnan White tea to really express the terroirs and potency of our favourite Yunnan mountains. This Jing Mai White is made from Spring pickings from Dashu (old tree) which have been sun and indoor withered before being pressed for us. It is a tea which is HIGHLY suitable for ageing but is spectacular to drink immediately.
The tea shows off the complexity of Yunnan terroirs with high, bright fruity aromatics combining with deep, resinous forests and confectionary nuttiness.
The effect of this tea will be different for everyone but I personally seem to react strongly to this one - altered, meditative and slightly trippy.
