Yǐ Shēng Gǔ Shù Bái Chá, 野生古树白茶, Wild Ancient Tree White Tea
C. sinensis var. wild tea trees, 300+ y.o; Dayao Shan, Lingcan, Yunnan, 1800+ m; post-Spring Festival, 2017, very young juvenile buds, sun dried, minimally processed White Tea; #TodaysTea, #今天的茶, #JīnTiāndeChá, #Tea, #茶, #Chá.
3g of tea steeped in 150ml water for 50-60sec.@90-100deg. C
Thick, downy, grey-brown buds present an apricot flavor in the middle back of the tongue with hints of passionfruit, and fruit salad plant (Monstera deliciosa) in a clear golden liquor. It really is a delightful and fruity tea.
Today, I went to watch my son play tennis, so I packed a travel kit for making tea and drank this tea from the sidelines whilst watching my son play. Forgive me for not rendering a more complete evaluation of this tea.
Special thanks to Yunnan Ancient Moon Tea House, in Shanghai for the tea.
