This year, we decide to spend most of our (white tea) energy on learning about loose leaf white tea and the difference between loose leaf (aged) white tea and pressed cakes. You can read about their main differences here. We created this new white tea sample box for the cold season! You will get 16g of each tea so total of almost 50g/3.5oz of teas.
White tea is considered the most exotic tea type in the world thanks to its simple processing and its delicate elegant fragrance and flavor. Fu Ding in Fu Jian, China is the brith place of white tea and the best white teas from this region is from Tai Mu Mountain.
You are probably familiar with the saying "One year old tea is just tea, three year old tea is a medicine and seven year old tea is a treasure." This saying indicates that white tea can be aged, and the aged ones could be more valuable than fresh white teas. It's also quite a tea experience to compare white teas from young to aged.
