White Mountain -- Taiwanese Old Growth White Tea Cake
Taiwanese Old Growth White Tea Cake
Limited Release Pre-Sale
**Currently aiming for a January 1st shipping date. Tea is finished and aging nicely. It will be pressed some time in December.**
Made from the same material as our Taiwanese Sheng, this white tea is something special. Young sheng mixed with creamy sweet Earl Gray is the best way to describe the taste of last year's (first and only) version of the tea. We have sampled this year's fresh white tea maocha and we are sure it will make some amazing tea!
We have decided to buy a bunch of this tea but will only release about half of what we buy. We will age the rest and release it later. The tea is getting a little age on it now before we press it and the shipping date is set for January 1st, 2020. We are releasing it the same way we did with the sheng cakes. The Pre-Sale prices will be 32$ for 100g and 60$ for 200g before rising to 35$ and 65$ after the shipping date.
