Wing On Wo x Grand Tea Imports - Endless Summer Shoumei
ABOUT ENDLESS SUMMER SHOUMEI
Across the many varieties of white tea, Shoumei (or ‘Sau Mei’ in Cantonese) stands out as a favorite amongst generations of Chinatown residents. The tea boasts a light flavor and sweet aftertaste that inspired early immigrants to make Shoumei a mainstay in Chinatown restaurants and dim-sum menus.
Shoumei’s popularity with the young and old can also be attributed to its minimally-involved production, which forgoes the roasting and fermentation process that most teas undergo--this ensures that the tea’s natural flavor and health benefits are well-preserved.
Our “Endless Summer Shoumei” pays tribute to a restaurant classic and the palates of Chinatown’s earliest wave of immigrants. Packed with vibrant young buds that deliver notes of crisp white tea and nuances of fresh green tea, the tea will refresh spirits to help make the summer last longer.
