The liquor texture of this tea Shou Mei white tea was immediately apparent. Even the rinse water showed excellent body. This was exquisitely confirmed the moment the liquor touched my lips. Like a light but warm blanket, with the feeling of thickness but none of the heaviness. The paradoxically light but full flavour of this tea compliments the mouthfeel perfectly. A fresh soy nuttiness tingles on every tastebud of the mouth. In later infusions, a slightly herbal flavour enters into the mix. This shou mei, and all of our white tea, is produced by two monks.
