The leaves of this Shou Mei exude freshness as if plucked just moments ago. While their vibrant green hues will soon yield to oxidation, giving way to mature flavors, they are presently primed for enjoyment. Presenting notes of nutty broccolini, a hint of lemon zest, the briskness of green apple, and the emerging warmth of aged white teas—think cinnamon and turmeric. Amazing chance to savor truly young white tea.
