Description

Regular size = 60 grams (2.12 ounces), which will make ten 16-ounce servings, or thirteen 12-ounce servings, of tea.

A classic full-flavored and relatively robust white tea, Shou Mei is one of China’s most popular. The name means “Longevity Eyebrows”, for the leaves’ shape. Shou Mei is considered to resemble oolongs in depth and complexity in flavor. This is bold for a white tea, presenting robust flavors with moderate floral aroma, and full color and body. Very satisfying and interesting, with many layers to its character.

Milk, sugar strongly discouraged.
