2013 Fuding Top Grade White Peony White Tea Angel Cake
This tea is no doubt another great white tea that we proudly offer. It hails from the core producing regions of Dian Tou township, Fuding county, Fujing province.
This tea was harvested in early spring, 2013, from the hilly mountains of Dian Tou core producing area, naturally processed and sun-dried, stored for three years then compressed into cakes in May of 2016. After 10 years of aging, this tea has developed excellent flavor and is a great pleasure to drink. It has a strong fragrance, tastes smooth and sweet, has hints of dates and other fruity notes. It produces strong saliva and you quickly find that your mouth is full of juicy sweetness and soothing to your throat.
There is a Chinese saying about Fuding white tea: "year one a tea, year three a medicine, and year seven a treasure". So the more aged the white tea, the more valuable it becomes. Aged white tea is regarded as having greater health benefits, especially for helping to prevent cold and fever.
