Bao Feng Xiang Ji "6 Years Aged" Gong Mei White Tea Cake

$54.00

Brand: Bao Feng Xiang Ji

This is entirely 2012 spring harvested Gong Mei White Tea from Fuding area of Fujian. It was aged in a clean/dry storage condition until it was pressed on April 10th 2018, and then stored in Kunming thereafter.  

The taste of the tea is ultra smooth and sweet with notes of malt, sugarcane and the slightest vegetal umami taste.  It reminds me of a marriage of a tippy Yunnan Black tea and Bai Mu Dan.  The aging has made this tea something beautiful to experience.  Very thick and satisfying tea that is almost impossible to over brew.  This can be brewed western style as well with excellent results!  We also offer another old Gong Mei cake here!

Gong Mei is considered to be 3rd grade Fuding White Tea, sharing character with both Bai Mu Dan and Shou Mei.
