A beautiful white tea from the Zhejiang region of China. It was first produced during the Tang Dynasty (618 – 907). Today Song Yang continues to be harvested and made exclusively by hand. Though this contributes to its fine character and flavor, it also severely limits its availability. About three thousand leaves go into the making of just one pound of this rare tea. All this hard work is well worth it. Our ‘Song Yang Serenade’ infuses a cup that’s light in color, with a tender aroma and a sweet, refreshing taste. If you enjoy the subtle taste of white tea, we recommend you give Song Yang a try.

One of the best white teas I’ve ever tried!
This is a wonderful white tea and very underrated. Discovering it was a pleasant surprise for me. In my book it ranks second only to a nice Silver Needle and not by much.
Tea brews to a dark yellow, will turn brown if brewed longer than 3-4 min.
Flavor is rich and delicious with a strong grassy undertone, leaving a slightly sweet aftertaste in your mouth. Leaves are unbroken and not fermented at all, tea will not turn bitter if over-steeped.
One of the best things about this tea is the aroma – for a white tea it has an unusually strong, grassy, and earthy bouquet. Excellent!
