No. 165, Zhenghe Gong Mei


An elegant and evocative white tea from Northern Fujian, Gong Mei translates to 'Tribute Eyebrow'.  Rich in fragrance and body, repeated infusions produce a fresh, smooth brew with voluptuous character. The plucking standard of Gong Mei, one bud and two-to-three leaves, creates a complexity and depth that resonates long on the palate and throat. 

This exceptional Gong Mei is sourced from a small family garden in the Wu Yi mountains of Fujian. This tea is purchased in small quantities and is a limited edition selection.

 Origin: Zheng He County, Fujian Province, China, late March 2022
