From jing tea shop

Harvesting : Early Spring 2008 (pre Qing-Ming)

Origine : Hu Lin Village, Fu Ding, Fu Jian Province.

Plantation varietals : Fu Ding Da Bai Hao varietal

Certification : Organic

Plantation attitude : 280 ~ 400 meters above sea level

Dry leaves appearance : Entirely hand-made from Fu Ding Da Bai Hao tips and sun dried, these high quality Yin Zhen exhibits a good amount of white fur on a healthy pale green leaf. This is a sign of quality in Yin Zhen as fully white leaves (fur and leaf) show that the tea went through a process using “liu huang” which consists in making the overall looking of the tea more white.

Aroma : The dry tea leaves offer a fresh roasted green bean fragrance with a hint of sweet cereals. The wet leaves give the same sweet green bean fragrance but sweeter and they are complemented by a delicate flowery layer.

Liquor : The liquor is pale yellow, as it should be, and the nose reminds a little sweet nutiness. The soup is quite thick showing that the tea comes from healthy trees.

Taste : Taste is sweet, with some eggy edge and a long and pleasant aftertaste.

Tips : When you brew Chinese white tea in a gaiwan, always leave a little bit of tea in the gaiwan between each infusion. This is call “the root” and will allow you to get the best of the green tea.

An excellent sweet, fruity, delicate silver needle tea.

I use a moderate amount of leaf, and let it steep cool and a little longer than most teas, because it’s so mellow there’s no downside to the longer steep.
