The Dragon Tea House recently put up this aged white tea, a Shou Mei.
I'm not too experienced with aged whites -- anybody tried anything like this one before?
White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

I like shou mei of a few years old (haven't had any of very old age yet) and think it remotely resembles oriental beauty. I am not enthusiastic enough to age a lot of whites myself. But overall I like year-old white peony and silver needle better than new ones. Ever since I tasted some past years' whites, I no longer worry about overstocking whites.
