Competition Bai Hao 3rd Class | Collection Box

Oriental Beauty
Product code: CSTAD-156
Add to my notebook

Here is the chance to taste one of the 200 award-winning 3rd class teas (only 9% of the prizes presented) during the last Bai Hao competition in Taiwan.

If the name Bai Hao translates to "oriental beauty", it will also sometimes be called "five colors tea" in honor of its delicate leaves with various hues of brown, green, orange and silver.

The infusion is simply ecstatic, unfolding an intense aromatic bouquet of flowers (lavender), ripe fruit, confectionery and spices.

Its sweet and silky liquor offers a trip of the most memorable taste, combining the sweetness of its texture (saponins) to its complex scents.

To taste in a chosen atmosphere to capture all the subtleties!

To learn more about the selection process, see the article devoted to it in our tea tasters blog.
