Pu Er Bai Ya TeaAsianArtMuseumStore
A white pu-erh tea might seem like a contradiction in terms to any aficionado of Chinese tea. After all, each term refers to the opposite end of the spectrum of tea processing. This tea contains a particular strain of twig buds from ancient wild tea trees, cultivated in the Chinese province of Yunnan, a good 1,500 meters above sea level, that is unexpectedly well-suited to gentle white-tea processing. The plump, fresh buds are harvested in early spring and carefully sun-dried. They impart an utterly unique, pleasantly subtle aroma, delicately sweetened by a wealth of health-inducing amino acids.
While the plump, pale-green buds of ancient wild tea trees are real eye catchers, it is their inner beauty that is special: A woody, resinous character surprises with flowery sweetness, hints of hay and spice and a good dose of caffeine to liven the spirits and open the mind.
