This tea from the 2012 harvest only gets better with age which is why it has been compressed into the cake form. This way of processing this white tea allows for it to mature and with time the taste only becomes smoother and sweeter.

Fuding Shou Mei White Tea comes from the original birthplace of white teas — Fuding in Fujian Province. There, the tea grows in mineral-rich soil and surrounded by fog which also adds plenty of micronutrients to the finished product.

White tea in Fuding is compared to a treasure that should be cherished and every sip drunk consciously and with great appreciation. It is said that tea is only the beginning of the journey and with age it transforms into a medicine.

The name of the tea comes from the shape of the loose tea leaves which are said to resemble the long eyebrows of Shouxing, the god of longevity. Together with its rich history and medicinal properties, this tea makes a great gift!
