From ESGREEN

This Brow Tea-Shou Mei Cha grown in high mountain area of Fu Ding, Fujian province of China. The tea leaves plucked from wild tea bushes—-No pesticides and fertilizers are used on these tea bushes, which makes this tea nature and green.
Different from artificial planting tea bushes, tea leaves of the wild tea bushes are larger, not very neat in shape, and some of the tea leaves even has small holes that bite by worms.
This brow tea comes with 1 bud and 2~3 leaves. The tea leaf mix with dark brown and gray color that covered with silvery downy fuzz.
This Mei Cha is aged for over 3 years so far. Mei Cha-brow tea is ideal to be vintaged. Similar with Pu-erh teas, aged white teas are more precious than newly processed white teas.
There is a Chinese adage that describes aged white tea: 1 year tea is tea, 3 years tea is medicine, 7 years tea is treasure.

The aged white tea has been used as herbal medicine since ancient China. In the northeast mountain area of Fujian province of China, which is the origin of white tea. People consider aged white tea as a treasure and use aged white tea to treat measles, sore throat, fever, stomach upset, agitated embolism etc. Long time aged white always has an immediate effect.
Meanwhile, aged white tea is considered most effective to keep skin healthy and clean. It’s the secret that girls from the white tea origin area are all have fine skins.These girls will take 2 large caddies of aged white tea as their dowry when they get married.

Aged white has a different taste compared with newly processed white tea. It provides a thicker, smoother and more mellow tea liquor with a stronger sweet after taste.
The dry leaf fragrance also has been changed from fresh orchid type aroma to deeper, herbal type aroma. Very special.

There are many conflicting claims about the aging possibilities of white tea. This offering proved that it is not only possible, but in some ways more desirable. Dried leaves are as shown in the photo and have a dried apricot and flowery aroma. The wet leaves have a sent of sweet kamkuat that is consistent through many steeps. It’s very easy to brew and never gets bitter or astringent. The tea soup is a beautiful apricot orange and very clear.

I don’t pick up any strong flavors, but rather smooth, mellow, deep, and a subtle sweetness that evolves from dried fruit to spicy honey. There’s no wow factor, but rather a soothing energy that stays in the gut. It seems to aid digestion. In many aspects, it’s a white tea that behaves like a dark tea, which I think makes it intriguing.

Where it lacks in aftertaste it compensates with great body that remains in the mouth as a warming and mouthwatering sensation rather than a flavor. This can be steeped 15+ times without loosing flavor or body. It’s very soothing on the stomach and doesn’t seem to be high in caffeine.
