This year's green Shou Mei is as usual from our white tea farmer, farmer Wen, but with one slight difference -- it's a wild bush tea! Shou Mei is the third grade of white tea with its own elegant aroma and a captivating taste. This tea is also charcoal roasted just like last year's harvest. 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 many faked aged Shou Mei white tea even in Chinese tea is made 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 and fresher fragrance. You can also find the "Ma Ti Jie", or "horse joint knot" which prove this tea is from taller wild tea trees rather than waist-high tea bushes.
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.
