Refreshing, tannic with prominent peachy note & a slight sweet aftertaste
Bai Ye or ‘White Leaf’ describes the light white hue on the fresh leaves. The picking grade is 3-5 leaves which has a small to medium opening. This Wu Long tea is known for its very forward fruity peach note. This batch is harvested from over 60 year old tea trees which are covered in moss due to the foggy moist air and cold climate. The origin of Bai Ye is Zhong Xin Yan, Wu Dong, Feng Huang Shan (Phoenix Mountains), Guangdong Province, China. Wu Dong is recognized by tea connoisseurs as the top location for growing and producing Dan Cong. This tea is also known as ‘Big White Leaf Dan Cong Oolong Tea.’
