Aged White tea is harvested from the pristine mountains at high elevation in Zhenghe, Fujian. The Zhenghe county is renowned for producing the finest white tea that won awards in numerous tea competitions during the Song dynasty (960 – 1279). Interestingly, the king was so delighted by the county’s remarkable white tea that he conferred his reign title, Zhenghe, to the county.

This tea is Shou Mei grade and made up of mainly leaves with some buds. It has aged for 3 years and will continue to mellow in taste over the years and many years to come. White tea of different vintages will vary in flavour and bioactivity. For the first time, recent study revealed that a new compound, EPSF (8-C N ethyl-2-pyrrolidinone-substituted flavan-3-ols), is formed over the years of ageing from theanine and flavanols during storage. EPSF has been identified in aged white tea, serving as a potential marker for the long term storage of white tea.

Aged White tea is available in loose leaf form. The same premium loose leaf tea is being used which is packed in pyramid tea bags. 

The pyramid tea bag is specially created to combine convenience with the full flavour of loose leaf tea, making it simple to enjoy premium white tea on-the-go or at the workplace.  

Compared to conventional tea bag, pyramid tea bag provides more room for the tea leaves to expand freely. Nevertheless, whole leaves have to be purposely broken into smaller pieces to fit into each pyramid tea bag. For this reason, some tea leaves may appear broken, but this does not affect the quality of the tea.

Carefully chosen for its finest quality, the biodegradable filter mesh material of the pyramid tea bag is made in Japan and certified under the “Green PLA” mark. The mesh material is derived from natural corn starch and 100% safe and non-toxic. The pyramid tea bags are sealed by ultrasound (instead of glue) and packed by HACCP system accredited facility in Singapore. 

Each Aged White pyramid tea bag is individually wrapped in a luxury foil pouch to protect the tea leaves from light, air, moisture and surrounding aromas, thereby locking in the tea's true flavor and best taste. Ideal for the office pantry or serving visitors to your home, the luxury foil pouch is also the best choice for restaurants and cafés as the airtight packaging prevents the tea leaves from picking up surrounding smell from the kitchen and other food. Now you can keep a luxury foil pouch in your handbag and take your Aged White tea wherever you go.

In the old days and to this day, it is common practice for family households in the remote villages of Fujian, where medical facilities were lacking, to store away some aged white tea. Aged white tea has been the best medicine for the villagers and the best defense to fight against common ailments like the common cold, flu and minor stomach discomfort. Enjoy the delightful floral, ripe melon-like fruitiness aroma and refreshing light flavor that does not turn bitter with prolonged steeping time. 

 

Aged white tea is highly valued for its medicinal properties. As the old Chinese saying goes, white tea is deemed a tea after 1 year, a medicine after 3 years, and a treasure after 7 years.
