 Sanxia White Tea

Hand-pinched from a heritage variety cultivar named Qin Xin Gan Zhong, this tea is rare, delicate and smooth. The cultivar's name has a character for a kind of fragrant orange included in it and that flavor is on full display in this tea. The first steeps are classic sweet and subtle white before opening up in later steeps to a flavor note somewhere around the meeting point of ginger and orange. Gentle, smooth and golden, this white tea is sure to become the favorite of many. 

Produced at a partner farm only 20 minutes from downtown Taipei in one of the oldest tea growing areas of Taiwan, the tea is made in the traditional way by a tea master in his 80s. Each leaf is plucked by hand (no finger blades are even used!) and each batch of tea is tiny. This style of tea production is extremely rare and we are happy to support farmers still making tea in this old, delicate style.

Produced at the same garden as our Sanxia Black and Sanxia Green Teas. You can try them all together here.

Received as a sample, had to order

Smooth, elegant, with full mouthfeel, this is an extraordinary white tea that's fragrant, sweet, and lacks bitterness. I received a sample with an order and had to order more. It'll be a consistent reorder for me.

My new morning tea!

My morning tea has been Bai Mu Dan for over 10 years, but I've lately had a lot of trouble finding decent quality at any remotely reasonable price, so I started looking for alternatives, and I think I'm adopting this Sanxia White as my new morning tea. The price point is great, and it's got a nice smell and flavor profile. It's a tiny bit on the sweet side for a morning tea, at least for me, but the overall experience (smell, aftertaste, mouthfeel) is just right, especially for the price.
