Place of OriginLincang, Yunnan

Tea Varietal : Jinggu Large Leaf Arbor Cultivar

The White Bud Puerh Tea is composed entirely of pure white buds that were hand harvested from tea plants grown in Yong De county of Lincang Prefecture near China’s border with Myanmar. It was harvested in the Spring of 2012 and was processed at a small facility in this rather remote area of Yunnan.
One thing to keep in mind about this tea is that it is not a conventional white tea. White teas are simply picked and dried, while this was processed just like other Sheng Puerh teas. It was picked, withered, pan fired, and sun dried, creating a flavor profile that is different and more assertive than conventional white tea. It has a bit of a sweet malty flavor without the bitterness common to other young Sheng Puerh. This is an excellent starting point for people who are new to Puerh in general because of its mildness, but it is also an excellent change of pace for people who are lovers of the many different forms that Puerh can take.
