There's a saying about aged Fuding white tea:
yīniánchá (Tea after one year,)
sánniányāo (Medicine after three,)
qīniánbǎo (Treasure after seven.)
Smooth and sweet, with a full, woodsy flavor and aroma like the richness of fall. A combination of fuzzy inner bud leaves and reddish-brown outer leaves. These single serving-sized mini-cakes are ten years old, three beyond the treasure mark. They last for many delicious brews, and can be saved for decades to come.
To me, it really tastes like walking in the forest in fall, listening to the sound of dry leaves as they crunch underfoot beneath a pewter sky, taking in the earthy grays and browns of the leaves and the bark on the trees. It's not entirely autumn, though, as there is a delicate, yet lively sweetness to its character, as well.
Well suited for extended brews with high heat or even steeping for an extended duration in water as it boils.
