Originating from the depths of the Yunnan tea forests at an altitude of over 2000m, this Shou Mei is like a sheep in wolf's clothing: raw, woody and wild in appearance and scent on the outside, but it turns out to be a wonderfully harmonious and well-balanced white tea when brewed. Tangy, fruity notes of freshly pressed grape juice with a subtle acidity and a prominent sweetness combine to make a very refreshing and perfectly harmonious tea with the characteristic raw, herbal aromas of the Pu Erh terroir, which are noticeably present in the tea's bouquet.

About Yoshi En.

Cultivation & Processing

The altitude of over 2000m provides not only an ideal climate for tea cultivation - the temperatures between day and night can sometimes fluctuate by 10-20°C - but also an environment that is rich in fog, which provides the tea leaves with natural sun protection and ensures a particularly sweet, aromatic infusion. This is also where the nickname "Bai Lu" of this tea comes from - literally "white dew". In the historical native region of the tea plant, many majestic old tea trees can be found, from which the highly sought-after Pu Erh teas are made. The use of the Yunnan Daye ("Yunnan Big Leaf") cultivar, which is predominant in this region, gives the tea a particularly aromatic, unique and at the same time very delicate character.

Single Origin

This tea is exclusively sourced from the tea farm in Baoshan, Yunnan.

Sourced directly from the tea farmer.


Brewing Guide

3 heaped teaspoons per 100-300ml (90-95°C) water, steep for 30-40 seconds. Suitable for several infusions. The tea can also be boiled, as is traditional in China (煮茶 Zhu Cha). For this, use the same amount of tea and water and boil the tea for 1-2 minutes each (depending on preference).


High quality, airtight, resealable standing zipper pouch with 9 protective layers to preserve flavour and protect against oxidation and contamination.

Recommended Teapot

For particularly aromatic preparation, a Yixing teapot made of natural clay or a black Tokoname Kyusu with a fine ceramic strainer is recommended, alternatively a tall glass teapot (more neutral taste) with an integrated strainer in which the tea can float and steep freely.
