Cultivar:
Fu yun No 6

(“Fujian-Yunnan No. 6”). From tea-drunk:

In a continuous effort to increase yield and manage budding evenness and seasonality, Fu Yun #6 quickly became so popular in many tea regions, including Fu Ding, it is now the most common varietal harvested and sold in the region. 

However, its lack of complexity and fullness make this tea a frowned upon varietal by conservative connoisseurs (when it comes to white tea).
