Fuding Wild Curly-leaf
from wild tea bushes
2011 Pre-Qing Ming

Soft, rich, and honeyed flavor
Floral aroma reminiscent of orange blossom honey
Deep amber liquor tending golden
We sourced our newest white tea from “lost” tea gardens hidden deep on the mountainsides of far northern Fujian Province (close to the border with Zhejiang Province). This spectacular white tea looks great: the dry leaf and buds are slightly twisted and curly from knowledgeable handwork and careful drying. The tea and liquor has a depth of color that is quite oolong-like and surprises the eye.
Wild Curly-leaf has a style that satisfies on several levels – its body is mouth-filling and rich; it has a honey-like flavor that lingers for hours on the palate; and it is un-complicated to prepare.
One of our new favorites, this white tea has much in common with the Shangri-La Silvertips that we had from Nepal last season.
Use 1 heaping Tablespoon per 6 oz of water
Steep 2-3 infusions at 2 minutes each.
Water temperature should be 170° F
