Bao Feng Xiang Ji "3 Years Aged" Gong Mei White Tea Cake

$33.00 USD

Brand: Bao Feng Xiang Ji

This is entirely 2015 spring harvested Gong Mei White Tea from Fuding area of Fujian. It was aged in a clean/dry storage condition until it was pressed on April 10th 2018, and then stored in Kunming thereafter.  

The taste of the tea is ultra smooth and sweet with notes of malt, sugarcane and the slightest vegetal umami taste.  It reminds me of a marriage of a tippy Yunnan Black tea and Bai Mu Dan.  Although this is only aged 3 years, it's very enjoyable and easy to drink.  There is a kind of hay/grass taste that is complemented with a thick mouthfeel and sweet honey taste.   We also offer another Gong Mei cake that is 3 years older here!

Gong Mei is considered to be 3rd grade Fuding White Tea, sharing character with both Bai Mu Dan and Shou Mei.
