White Bud Pu'erh
White Bud Pu'er acts as a beautiful intersection between two very different types of tea - it is an excellent choice for those or are new to pu'er or appreciate the many complex forms it can take, and is also an excellent change of pace for white tea lovers who are looking for something different. This is because White Bud Pu'er is not your conventional white tea. It is composed entirely of pure, delicate and bright white buds that are processed in the traditional manner of pu'er tea; picked, withered, pan fired, and sun dried. This produces a tea with a sweet and malty flavor profile that is more complex and assertive than the ordinary white tea, but lacks the bitterness commonly associated with other young pu'er tea.
Sweet, Malty, Mellow
The tough and water-resistant exterior of these buds means that we can use hotter that usual water for a white tea (185-195F), and steep for a longer time than usual (3-4 min).
