DESCRIPTION

This white delicacy tea comes from the Snow Mountain, the highest in Yongchun county (永春县,) in the Fujian province of China. The "Xiao Bai" tea trees grow here wildly at an altitude of about 1300m. Trees were planted during the 50's, but the plantations were gradually abandoned until today, very few people left working the plantations in this area..
.
Classic white teas have been more frequently picked from "Da Bai" ("大白", meaning "big white") tea tree varietals, while this unique harvest is picked from wild "Xiao Bai" ("小白", meaning "small white") varietals. "Xiao Bai" or "small white" refers to the smaller size of the tea buds and leaves compared to Da Bai varietal. White teas made with Xiao Bai tend to have a sweeter and more delicate taste and aroma..
.
2022 Snow Mountain is a Gong Mei, following picking standards of 1 bud 3 leaves bud and leaf ratio. Also as per Gong Mei standards, leaves are harvested only once they've reached a certain level of maturity, resulting in larger-sized leaves compared to teas with younger tea leaves.

TASTING NOTES

As per Gong Mei standards, leaves are harvested only once they've reached a certain level of maturity, resulting in larger-sized leaves compared to teas with younger tea leaves.
.
This results also in a bolder and fuller flavour profile, while still being a very delicate and fragrant tea. The aroma when first pouring the water is simply mind-blowing, with a very vegetal and even slightly marine aroma. Flavour is perfectly balanced, sweet and refreshing.
