TASTING NOTES: Flowers | Apricots | Clover Honey
GROWER: Zhang Family

The Zhang family are part of the native Yi population of Yunnan in China. Their traditional lands are 2000m above water level and the tea trees that grow there are hundreds of years old. White tea was very recently introduced to the province of Yunnan and the Yi community have perfected the technique in a short time. Since the first time that Grandmother Zhang, accompanied by her pet monkeys, prepared and served us this tea, it has become a staple at O5

Slow drying under the moonlight; the downy side resists oxidization and remains white, whereas the smooth side is exposed to oxygen and darkens.
