Organic Bai Mu Dan ⋅ 白牡丹

Our Organic Bai Mu Dan comes from Fuding County, Fujian Province. Its two leaf and a bud combination comes from the Da Bai tea tree, picked in mid-April after the individual tea buds that make up Silver Needle have been gathered.

Once picked, the leaves undergo a gradual "fade", during which time, the leaves are slightly enzymatically oxidized before they are given a final low temperature bake. This classic white tea crafting method enhances the sweetness and mouth feel of this tea, while preserving the natural character of the tea leaves.

Organic Bai Mu Dan brews a light golden infusion with a hint of sweetness reminiscent of dried apricot and almonds.

Very late night tea session, so pretty short – even more so because it was interrupted by my landlord coming over to fix something in the kitchen. Pleasant though, and exactly what I wanted/expected from a Bai Mu Dan! Lovely & smooth with notes of timothy hay, clotted cream, and cucumber skins!! Nothing complex or out of the ordinary – and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.

Sun tea brew:

I love using good white teas for sun tea, and this is no exception. That wonderful light, crisp, clean finishing taste is present. The hint of wood, dried fruit, and nuts work very well in the cold version.

I almost like it better as sun tea than as hot tea!
