White tea means that tea was “fixed”, or “de-enzyming”, or “killing the green”. This is a process of tea manufacture used to halt the oxidative browning of tea leaves by denaturing the enzymes responsible for oxidation – polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase.

Li Shan tea trees are grown in this cold and humid environment, making the tea leaf soft and with amazing fruit fragrance and taste. This unique feature cannot be found on the teas grown in low altitude areas.

Liquor is greenish and clear; aroma is wonderful with sweet peach notes. Very soft and sweet peach taste and aftertaste.
