2014 Gongmei White Tea is a delicious monster of a tea brick. Punching in at 500 grams, this gal delivers a very sweet, interestingly fruity cup that seemingly re-steeps forever. We've taken this tea to demo at festivals and it is nearly universally loved and has extraordinary patience (re-steeping potential). Best of all, it's a very forgiving tea, as most white teas are, meaning that it's difficult to mess up while preparing it. It doesn't seem to have a bitter bone in its body.
If you haven't experience aged white tea, this is a great one to start with. Overall it's a bit fruitier and more approachable than our 2013 Gong Mei
, which has more spice and dark sugar notes.
