White tea «Bai Hao Yin Zhen» («Silver Needles with white fur») from Zhenghe County (Fujian province), made in early harvest of 2021.
In appearance: large, silvery-grey, pointed, hairy buds. The fragrance is restrained, floral-herbaceous. The liquor is transparent, with a light shade of white grapes.
The bouquet of the ready-made tea is fresh and airy, floral-herbaceous with hints of flaxseed, raspberry leaf, gooseberry, and peppermint. The fragrance is tender, floral-herbaceous. The taste is refined and full-bodied, silky, sweetish, with a fine berry sourness, minty coolness, spicy nuances, and lingering finish.
Brew tea with hot water (70-80°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in a teapot of porous clay. The proportion is 5-6 g per 100 ml. The time of the first steeping is about 15 seconds. After that do short steeps (just for 2-3 seconds), increasing steeping time for each subsequent step, if necessary. You can repeat steeping up to 12 times.
«Zhenghe Bai Hao Yin Zhen» is an outstanding white tea for sophisticated connoisseurs.
