Longevity Eyebrow - Shou Mei
This dry leaf shows a darker colour than comparable white teas, as it is produced from naturally withered leaves and tips. It is often made from the leaves leftover after Bai Mudan is processed a little later in the year, and uses the Da Bai cultivar. Its strong flavour reminds many people of oolong teas, rather than whites.
