Full Description

Shou Mei is the third grade of white tea. The characteristics of Shou Mei are big leaves, big twigs and very few buds. Even though it's not as well known or prized as silver needle or Bai Mu Dan, it has its own elegant aroma and a captivating taste. The best part is it's charcoal roasted. The purpose of charcoal roasting white tea is to enhance aroma and it's better for aging teas. In three years, if stored well, this green Shou Mei will slowly turn yellow and light brown and become an aged white tea.  The reason we call it "green Shou Mei" is because there are quite many faked aged Shou Mei white tea even in Chinese tea market, that farmers will fake age white teas by using heat and humidity to make fresh young tea leaves brown. A green Shou Mei however, is usually a fresh harvested tea and most likely sun withered instead of indoor withered by machines, which gives the tea a richer aroma. 

We used to get the winter harvest of Shou Mei, but now we have switched to the spring harvest with our new white tea farmer, farmer Wen, who does mostly charcoal roasting finish style for his white teas.
