Fuding Huang Ye

Wild field
Product code: CSTB-43

This precious Chinese white tea comes from the Fuding region in the Fujian province. It is the birthplace of this style of tea. This harvest is distinguished by the fact that the garden has remained uncultivated for more than 40 years, giving the tea the name "Huang Ye". The Fuding Da Bai tea bushes are left to rest between plucking periods, in contrast to the usual management of gardens in this area. The mature trees offer a more complex, yet delicate liquor.

The very small amount of downy buds produced have simply been sun withered. This traditional method creates a hearty, sweet tea with a full, silky texture. The infusion is expressed with accents of straw and mushroom and daylily flowers. Subtle notes of cooked fruit remain into the finish.

The producer Mr. Zhang is very proud to introduce us to this gem.
