2008 Vintage Fuding White Peony White Tea Bai Mu Dan
This exquisite tea is from its true origin, Fuding county of Fujian province. Fuding is the original area for cultivation and production of white tea dates back to the early nineteenth century. Fuding has a unique terroir with 90% hilly land, and is credited as the "Home of Chinese White Tea".
This tea has been aged for 13 years. Due to its aging, it has become smoother and sweeter, with well-balanced taste. It can sustain 10 steepings.
There is an old Chinese saying about Fuding white tea: "year one a tea, year three a medicine, year seven a treasure". So the more aged the white tea, the more precious it becomes. Historically the locals use the tea as a medicine for preventing from fever and cold.
