Lao Bai Cha is relatively rare outside China. Many people drink fresh white tea and are not even aware that White tea can be aged like Pu Erh tea. Ageing makes the tea taste and texture become smoother and fuller. The infused tea color is light yellow at first, while later steepings become brown with a red tone.

Type: White
Season: August, 2011
Origin: Fuding, Fujian province, China
Form: 357g pressed cake

Drank this tea Grandpa at work earlier in the week, and was super impressed with how lovely it was. Very smooth, and creamy both in terms of mouthfeel and flavour. I topped my mug up like three or four times and this was flavourful each time. Mild floral undertones, but primarily this profile very much like fresh cream/marscapone with may and autumnal leaf notes. It felt refreshing, and sweet in a really natural way.

Kind of like, and bare with me, a romanticized notion of drinking tea on a dairy farm? Like, not the gross and manure-y stench you’re probably get if you drank tea on an actually dairy farm – but more just the notions of bails of hay and autumnal, crunchy leaves falling around and lots of fresh milk everywhere.

Or that’s my thought, anyway.
