- Tea Knowledge
This Yin Zhen from Taimu Mountain shows off the best of Fuding white tea: a delicate, transparent brew wafts the poignant florality of lavender, underscored by honey sweetness. Though fairly young in white tea terms, a few years' ageing has tempered it with the beginnings of maturity, while leaving some youthful vigor. Steeped at lower temperatures, there's just a touch of grain and straw, and maybe dried apple, in the starchy and slightly tingly mouthfeel. Best enjoyed alone while reminiscing, or to share a touch of happiness with beloved company.
