Shou Mei, also known in the Czech Republic as 'Eyebrows of Long Age'.
This is a basic grade of white tea, but we have left it to mature in our warehouse for 10 years. The leaves are richly downy, with a few thick tips here and there. Now after such a long time in storage they are more brown than usual. The infusion has also darkened - it is a deep orange-yellowish colour with a typical 'medicinal' aroma and taste, a heavier spicy herbaceousness and a light fruitiness. The aftertaste is very distinctly sweet and lasts and lasts.
