Late Harvest Shou Mei - White Tea
Translating to Long Life Eyebrow, this satisfying tea originating from feudal Fujian province, is so-named for the crescent shape of its naturally withered leaves. More intense essences develop beneath a waxy cuticle on the upper leaves and tips, creating an aroma profile similar to aged white tea. Rich in vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants that help keep toxins at bay, a satisfying cup of this tea is said to aid in digestion and guard the heart. We drink it for an enhanced sense of wellbeing.
This golden-orange liquor pairs beautifully with earthy mushrooms, creamy cheeses and roasted meats. Wild honey and thyme on the nose, honeydew melon on the palette with a viscous, velvety mouth feel.
Rich in antioxidants, helps improve digestion and immune boosting.
