Bai Hao Yin Zhen 2023

A pinnacle among pinnacles, this Yin Zhen hails from an ecological (sheng tai) tea garden on the legendary birthplace of white tea itself, Taimushan. The tiny, barely peach-fuzzed buds open with a gently spicy aroma over a crisp and starchy body, evoking summery refreshments—woodruff cordial, horchata, slices of green apple, followed by orange—but truly satisfy with a long-lasting lavender and rose sweetness in the aftertaste. Taimushan white teas are a prestigious commodity, and it took much searching to find one worth its premium.
