Cultivar: Baiye #1
This Dragon Well micro-lot is made from a special cultivar called Baiye #1 which is known for its high polysaccharide and amino acid profile, providing for a rich balance of savory umami flavor and refreshing tender sweetness. Picked during the Mingqian season, this tea is lively and bright with a creamy mouthfeel and notes of almondmilk, honeysuckle, and corn silk tea. This tea is a lovely companion and counterpoint to the more grassy and fruity Dragon Well Single Cultivar Long Jing #43.
