Enemy's Demise (Lao Bai Cha) is a beautiful White Tea (Bai Cha) from Zhenghe, Fujian Province with a mellow, fruit, fresh, tart taste and a drying, medium body mouthfeel.

Like all of our teas, we only source the "Grand Cru" version of Enemy's Demise (Lao Bai Cha) through our exclusive relationships with the most sought after tea farmers in China.

About Enemy's Demise (Lao Bai Cha)

You won't find a tea like Enemy's Demise anywhere in the West. It is a Zhenghe Lao Bai Cha, meaning it is an aged White tea. Aged White tea has become particularly scarce in China because of how popular it is to drink for its purported health benefits. That's why the tea literati in China want to buy back our entire stock!

In addition to its health benefits, Lao Bai Cha acquires additional distinct flavors as it ages. Unfortunately, most Lao Bai Cha sold in the West has not been aged properly, so it does not have this property. Luckily for us, we have spent over a decade forming relationships with farmers to gain exclusive access to the real deal.
