Nan Mei white buds (Wild Tea Trees)

From / Depuis $13,75



These white tea buds come from ancient wild tea trees located in the Nan Mei Valley in the Lincang region of Yunnan.

They come from a sub-varietal of the tea bush (Camellia Sinensis Assamica Dehongensis) growing in tropical areas of Yunnan, near Myanmar.  The buds are usually picked in early February and then sun-dried.  The flavor is fresh and a little fruity, somewhat similiar to a good white tea but with more complex flavors.  The brewed liquor is whitish and very clear, with a hint of fresh pine needles and pepper in the aroma. The minty finish is pleasant and refreshing.
