According to the Chinese tea saying about Bai Hao Yin Zhen "1 year is fresh, 3 years is medicine, 5 years is treasure." Favored among white tea connoisseurs, when the long, slender, down-covered buds, are aged with care, the flavors evolve into a more rounded and smooth infusion. These buds were plucked in the early spring of 2007 from the Da Bai bush cultivars that grown in the original tea gardens of Fuding, Fujian province. Buttery and mild with notes of raw nuts and dried hay.
