A white tea of pure buds from ancient tea trees in Yunnan

While the plump, pale-green buds of ancient wild tea trees are real eye catchers, it is their inner beauty that we fell for: A woody-resinous character surprises with flowery sweetness, hints of hay and spice, and a good dose of caffeine to liven the spirits and open the mind.

At first glance, a white pu-erh tea might seem like quite the contradiction in terms to any aficionado of Chinese tea. After all, the terms each refer to the opposite end of the spectrum of tea processing. Cultivated in the Chinese province of Yunnan, a good 1500 meters above sea level, it is a particular strain of twig buds from ancient wild tea trees traditionally used in pu-erh production that lend themselves so unexpectedly well to gentle white tea processing. The plump, fresh buds are harvested in early spring and carefully sun-dried. In return they impart an utterly unique – yet pleasantly subtle – aroma delicately sweetened by their sheer wealth of health-inducing amino acids.

Our go to tea for the last several years

Occasionally you find a tea that works in all situations.
The white Pu Er Bai Ya is such a tea for me. It has an incredible elegance, but at the same time it is an absolute pleasure to work with, It can be consumed cold, it is possible to make four infusions and it can steep longer for a more intense flavour.
We always have this tea at home and I genuinely think that this white tea is an absolute steal at this price point!

überraschend, besonders, einzigartig

Dieser Tee hat mich bei meiner Reise durch die Teewelt bis jetzt am meisten und angenehmsten überrascht. Leicht süß, vegetal und blumig, dazu noch mit einer einer wunderschönen Geschichte. Für mich nichts für jeden Tag, eher für besondere Gelegenheiten.

Wunderschöne feinste Knospen

Einer meiner absoluten Favoriten von P&T. Reinste Knospen bedeckt mit einem feinen Flaum sprechen bereits für die Qualität dieses Tees. Sehr feiner süßer weißer Tee, mit einer recht dominanten Würze. Bittert überhaupt nicht nach und kann auch sehr gut im Grandpa Style aufgebrüht werden. Absolute Probierempfehlung!
