2017 Shoumei Biscuit

One River Tea

Regular price $10.00 Sale

Similar to the older 2014 Shoumei biscuit, this tea is lightly compressed and shows evidence of a mid-autumn harvest, given that there are many buds mixed in among larger leaves.  This tea breaks up quickly and brews a rich golden hue.  The aroma reflects an interesting turning point in the tea: right around three years of being aged, the fresh green taste and fragrance of white tea transforms into a more complex, heavy and floral fragrance.  These transformations of aged white tea are summed up in a popular Chinese saying: “一年茶,三年药,七年宝” or “one year tea, three years medicine, seven years treasure”.  In the cup, the liquor is pleasantly thick, not overly bitter, and beginning to find its fragrance.  This tea is affordable and convenient for drinking at home, in the office or while traveling.
