Yinzhen Baihao is a slightly fermented tea with its body covered with fluffy white hair, noted for its specail character: "silvery hairs covered body, fresh aroma, mellow taste and brilliant yellow brew water". Its dry leaves have a silky texture from the fine white hairs that cover each shoot. When steeped, the budlets become revealed. The flavor is unmistakable and long lasting. The aftertaste is smooth, sweet and satisfying. A small handful (about 3-5grams) can be steeped three or four times for about five minutes with great tatse.
High in antioxidants and low in caffeine, this is an excellent tea to drink late at night and throughout the day by those sensitive to caffeine. Medically it is refreshing and is good for the stomach and eyes. It can also be used to dispel the heat and inflammation.
Yinzhen Baihao, highest quality white tea, is picked during the spring before the buds open to preserve its tenderness. Brewing with a clay teapot can best show the aroma of the tea.
