White Tea (白茶): Fuding Bai Hao Yin Zhen (福鼎白毫银针)
This white tea (白茶) made entirely of buds is fresh and sweet, reminding us of watermelon in summer. Smelling its leaves after the infusion reveals floral notes of geranium. On the palate, its fresh and thirst-quenching side leaves us with a mentholated finish that lingers in time. A tea so subtle and fine it is mystifying; a tea to be enjoyed alone, with all one's attention.
