From the birthplace of black tea, Tong Mu Guan, comes this delightful anomaly of white tea which will continue to oxidize and develop in flavor and depth with some age. The fresh leaves are first withered indoors and then placed outdoors to finish oxidizing and finally allowed to dry in the sun. Because the process lacks the intense heat of a wok or steam finish, the enzymes in the leaves are still active. Each 5-8 gram baby cake has been hand pressed and wrapped; multiple brewings can be done. Sold by the cake.
