Made from the SiJiChun ‘Four Season Spring’ cultivar. This fragrant, lightly sweet White tea is hand picked and the minimally processed over the course of eight to ten days. This is the tea which inspired it’s maker, The Mr. Yu, to recite with respect to it, “In it’s first year it’s just tea, in it’s third it’s medicine, and in it’s seventh it’s a treasure.” Whether you drink it now or wait a full seven years to test the adage is up to you. Either way this is a special tea. Simply put, this is some of the best White tea you may ever drink.
