The Tao of Tea, Imperial White Tea, Loose Leaf, 2.0 Ounce Tins

The Tao of Tea, Imperial White Tea, Loose Leaf contains White Tea Leaves. Full-bodied chestnut aroma with a hint of smokiness. Golden brew with a mellow, lingering, nutty, vegetal flavor. Ningde is nestled between the mountains and the ocean in the northeastern corner of China’s Fujian province. The region is also known as ‘Min Dong’ in reference to the ancient Min culture of southeastern China. Tea purists seek only the clean, clear and pure flavor of the leaf. This is because the unadulterated leaf has the capacity to provide an experience which has inspired many artists, musicians, philosophers and monks. Our company is based on this premise and offers great quality leaf that is fresh, flavorful and full of soul. Only a small portion of all tea made in the world comprises the ‘orthodox’ or full leaf style of processing. In addition, only a few tea areas remain where ‘old-style’ hand processing is still practiced from tea plants that grow wild or those that have been preserved for centuries. The Tao of Tea works primarily with tea growers that practice this true art of tea making.
