From MeiMei Fine Teas

From its true origin, Fuding, Fujian province of China, this tea is wild grown, refreshing, mellow and smooth. Fuding is the original area for cultivation and production of white tea dating back to the early 19th century. Fuding has a unique terroir with 90% hilly land, and is credited as the “Home of Chinese White Tea”. White Tea has gained in popularity in recent decades and has been grown in other parts of China as well as some other countries, but the quality and flavor vary significantly. However, Fuding white tea remains the most sought after white tea in the world.

Chinese folk tradition indicates that white tea has tremendous medicinal benefits, especially for boosting the immune system and helping to cure cold and fever. It is also pairs very well with a variety of food.

I am not a fan of white tea — never have been. I can’t figure out how to work it into my daily routine — is it a morning tea, an afternoon tea, or an evening tea? All in all, though, this one was pretty good. It wasn’t too heavy and had a unique, indescribable, vegetal flavor to it. It ended up being an afternoon tea for me, as the caffeine was just enough to be keep me going but not enough to help start the day.

I really like white teas as cold brews (and it is definitely the weather for it!) I can sip on them throughout the day in a thermos and feel refreshed and energized but there isn’t enough caffeine that if I keep sipping my water bottle into the evening that it ruins my night routine.

I’ll have to try this as a cold brew! I have generally heard that white tea isn’t as caffeinated as the other varieties but then I read another article saying that white teas vary so much in caffeine that some are as low as greens and some even higher than blacks, so I was concerned about drinking them too late. It sounds like your experience is more of the former…?
