This is entirely 2016 spring harvested Shou Mei White Tea from Fuding area of Fujian. It was pressed in 2016 and then stored in a dryish Guangdong storage condition until now. The taste of the tea is ultra smooth and sweet with notes of malt, sugarcane and the slightest vegetal umami taste. This can be brewed western style as well with excellent results!
