On a cloudy summer eve here in Kansas City, we are sipping on this tea which is one of our newest additions in the shop. This is ironic, because it is the oldest tea that we have. Five years ago, our owner Shang pressed tea bricks with white tea from the da bai/da hao varietals of the tea plant (the traditional white tea varietals). Over the past 5 years they have been slowly aging and developing some nice earthy undertones with the smooth finish that you have come to expect from our teas.
The process for making this tea is very similar to a sheng or raw puerh except that we use the white tea varietals to process this tea. We are really enjoying it here in the shop, so give it a shot if you enjoy pu-erh and are looking for something different to try.
