About Shou Mei White Tea
Shoumei is a white tea that is produced from naturally withered upper leaf and tips, with a stronger flavor reminiscent of lighter oolong teas. It is mostly grown in the Fujian Province or Guangxi Province in China.Because it is plucked later than Bai Mudan, the tea may be darker in color, but it should still have a proportionate green color.
Technically this tea, being a fourth grade tea, is a by-product of Baihao Yinzhen tea production and uses Da Bai or Large White leaves.
It is best prepared with water below boiling (at around 75 to 80 degrees Celsius or 167 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit) and produces a slightly viscous glittering pale yellow color with evidence of floating white hairs that reflect light. Up to 5 minutes per brew, and the volume of tea to be used can be higher.
