About This Tea

White Shui Xian in its original nomenclature, represents an innovative breakthrough steeped in a century of tea craftsmanship. Born in the 1920s, this meticulously crafted tea embodies a harmonious fusion of the robust, floral Shui Xian cultivars with the gentle, minimalist processing methods characteristic of white tea.

The leaves of White Shuixian are slightly fat, tender and wide, with green buds and some leaves. The thick and large leaf form may be rough and wild, but a sip of the tea soup will make you fall into the warmth and sweetness. The tea soup is bright yellow and delicate with both the aroma of Shui Xian and the freshness of white tea. 

*Tea leaves contain tea polyphenols and caffeine, which are the source of the bitter and astringent flavour of the tea soup, as well as the source of the sweetness. Reducing the amount of tea leaves, lowering the water temperature or speeding up the soup can reduce the bitterness and astringency.
