10 years aged white tea
A RARE TREASURE
There is a saying in China: ‘one year - tea, three years - medicine, seven years – treasure’. In a nutshell this means teas aged from seven years upwards become a treasure pursued by enthusiasts. Because the longer they are stored, the richer and mellower they become. Most aged white teas are 5-6 years old, so teas aged for 10-20 years old are very rare; and only grown in ancient tea tree forests of Fuding and Zhenghe in Fujian province. Crafted to the highest standards by masters following traditional skills passed on to them; and all behind closed doors to protect their precious secrets.

China, Fujian Fuding
Fuding is one of the main producing areas for white tea in China. It’s surrounded by highlands with spectacular rock formations, caves and towering mountains, including the famed Taimu mountain – known as ‘Paradise at sea’. The region is awash with rolling hills, fresh streams and forests. The hilly territories with their red and yellow soils and the year-round mild climate and consistent rainfall contribute to the unique flavour of the white tea produced here.
