FuDing BaiCha 2012
This is a tea whose looks maybe confusing: you can take it for pu’er while it’s not. The cake smells like a dark chocolate bar, with some vegetal and animal hues like tobacco and wet leather. Wet leaves aroma reveals stronger végétal and spicy notes. Liquor whose colour resembles that of Sauternes is amazingly delicate and smooth and rounded, without a single touch of astringency. It’s aged white tea compressed in a cake – Fuding Bai Cha, 2012.
It will be interesting to compare it in a face to face battle with Bai Hao Yin Zhen and Bai Mu Dan – stay tuned!
