Entrancing aromatics and an emerging smooth character, the years have tempered the green youth out of the Undercover. Intense lingering huigan [returning sweetness] and bold flavor with an enduring core. Perfect for those seeking a high quality tea with a bit of age to drink right away, though this tea will benefit from further aging as you please.
Each cake is 200 grams.
Stored in dry/natural conditions in Fujian from 2014-2018, this baicha [white tea] from Fuding county in Fujian province is considered to be Shoumei grade white tea.

This tea is very versatile and suitable for further aging or drinking directly.
