This is wonderful delicate white tea.
These lovely pearls are made from white peony leaves that are hand-shaped. Each pearl is of the larger variety, weighing on average 3.5 to 4 grams. Once steeped, the cup reveals classic white peony notes of melon and cucumber, a little mineral flintiness and just a hint of honey. Perfect for on-the-road brewing and multiple steepings.
Tea pearls are named to indicate their shape, tightly hand-shaped balls of 3.5-4 grams of baicha or white tea. Like all Chinese white teas, this is grown in Fujian where the fertile fields provide the country with one-fifth of its total tea production and white teas their signature taste and aroma. Minimal processing retains the exquisitely mild flavor, and offers a light golden liquor in the cup. As the pearls unfurl in the heat of the water, the scent and flavor of melon and cucumber are released along with a slight mineral edge of honey.
Great gift for Tea Lover or for your own pleasure!
