From Teavivre

White tea is a non-fermented tea grown and harvested primarily in China, mostly in the Fujian and Zhejiang province. As one of the six famous Chinese teas, this tea owns its name for its white appearance. As a result of the particular process without baking and rolling, white tea leaves are coated with tiny white pekoes.
White tea has quite loose tea leaves which are not easy to carry around. For convenience, they are usually shaped into cakes. Taste has nothing to do with the tea’s shape. Loose tea and cakes of same quality can yield the same taste.
There is another good reason for people to compress loose white tea leaves into a cake, not merely for storage or transit, but also for letting the tea mature. Year later, the tea gets smoother and softer, will become sweeter and mellower.
This white tea cake is made of tea leaves picked form Da Hao and Da Bai Cha tea trees grown in Fuding, Fujian. It is Shou Mei grade, weights 380g.
In Fuding Town, there is an old saying about this tea: it is tea in the beginning, will turn into medicine three years later, and becomes treasure after seven years. Aged white tea cake is definitely valuable to drink.

Water: 8oz

Leaves: large green/brown leaves

Steep: 6m

Aroma: faint

Color: dark yellow

Taste: This tea was more messy then the rest in terms of measuring i just pinched off a bit & put it into my tea ball. During the steep quite a few of tea particles escaped, for the 6m brew time. Aroma i didn’t pick up on much of anything it was very light and faint. As for taste it was bland.
