From Vicony Teas

Shou Mei is a white tea that is produced from naturally withered upper leaf and tips, with a stronger flavor reminiscent of lighter Oolong teas. It is mostly grown in the Fujian Province in China. Because it is plucked later than Bai Mudan, it is darker in color and have a proportionate green color, making a darker brew with more depth.

The Shou Mei White Tea cake shown here is sourced by ViconyTeas from the tea farmers in Taimu mountain in Fuding and made in the traditional sun-dried production way and stone-mould pressed. The Shou Mei White Tea cake is good for consumption in the current year of production but if stored for years, it would taste better.

This is the second white tea cake I’ve tried from Vicony Teas Company. I ordered this along with another tea.

Leaf Quality:
The leaves in this cake were quite loosely compacted, and showed a variety of colors. I was able to pull apart most of the leaves whole; the majority were brown, others white or melon green. There were a few buds mixed in with the generally larger leaves. They were quite fragrant as well. The scent reminded me of a mildly floral Oolong. The brewed leaves were floral as well, and some expanded to be even larger than I had thought. All leaves retained the same color after brewing.

Brewed Tea:
The tea yielded a golden-yellow liquor which smelled floral, sweet, and fruity. It tasted much more like an Oolong than a white tea, bringing melon qualities with every sip. The flavor was also fuller than most other white teas I’ve had.
Second Steeping
The second steeping was as sweet as the first, and the melon qualities were more pronounced. It didn’t taste as floral as it smelled, but it was still quite delicious.
Third Steeping
The third brew was light and floral. The melon notes were only present with each finishing sip. The aftertaste was sweet.

It will be interesting to see how this tea will change in flavor over time.
