Enjoy this beautifully looking white tea cake consisting of fatty buds from the Fuding ‘da bai cha’ cultivar. This silver needle cake brews a yellow liquor with a soft taste and refreshing aroma. Everything you can expect from a top grade white tea.
Different from loose leaves, the raw material of this cake is first steamed soft and afterwards compressed. When stored, the leaves will slowly improve further in taste, acquiring an amazing flavor in 3 years, and reaching its full potential in about 7 years.
Use a tea knife to pry of a chunk of this cake and steep it at the temperature and duration as specified in the ‘additional information’ section/tab. As soon as the color turns yellow, it’s ready to drink! Feel free to adjust temperature and duration based on personal preference.
