White Orchard is an aged white tea (Lao Bai Cha) picked in July of 2015. This particular tea is a masterful blend of the buds and leaves of the tea plant. The aging process has given the tea a quaint charm that is simply unforgettable.
There is very little room for mistakes in the processing of aged white teas, and White Orchard is a testament to this highly skilled task. It is an explosion of sweetness in a single sip while the mouth is coated in a luscious syrup-like texture.
