Zhenghe Old Style White Tea:

Before there were the Dai Bai cultivars for the modern White Peony, it had first been indigenous Cai Cha for producing white teas in Fujian. A lesser looking tea plant but capable of a deeper and rounder taste profile, such sexually propagated tea bushes still exist today. Presenting Tea Hong’s very own Premodern Peony — patiently processed like it used to be a century ago, and matured to our tea master’s personal liking. All the wholesomeness of white tea with a fine taste that you can keep drinking throughout the day.

Taste profile

An herbal nose with a distinct earthy overtone and a deep, sweet wood accent. Clear, maple syrup colour infusion. Bright impression. Fullest body as a white tea with the sharpness of a fresh roasted green tea and the maltiness of a black tea. Resonates with a persistent yet light umami. Deep sweet wood accents intermediated by the slight bites of a neutral astringency. Long, sweet and malty aftertaste.

Infusion tips

Prepare as if it were a whole leaf black tea using the conventional method. If the gongfu approach is preferred, infuse as if it were a Wuyi oolong but use slightly more leaves and very slightly more time. Optimum infusion temperature 95°C.
