Organic Bai Mu Dan White Tea
Originally the tea of Emperors, white teas are increasing in popularity due to a reputation for quality, health benefits, and unique flavor. Few white teas are as unique as this selection of Organic Bai Mu Dan (also known as Pai Mu Tan and White Peony). This is an eye-catching tea made up of full, whole leaves ranging in color from green to russet to silver. Bai Mu Dan White tea tastes crisp and very much alive; smooth and earthy, with a hint of nut.
Another special feature of this tea: it is grown organically. Unlike most agricultural produce, tea leaves cannot be simply rinsed like an apple to remove pesticides, so the organic growing process is especially important for white teas since they are not processed and fermented like other teas. This tea is great for someone who has never tried white tea before, but will also provide a flavorful surprise for those already in love with the delicate taste of white tea.
Our Organic Bai Mu Dan White tea comes from the Oothu Estate in southern India, a pioneer in organic farming in India. Sheltered by a lush and beautiful rainforest, the Oothu garden produces teas that are softer and more aromatic in comparison to Chinese Bai Mu Dan teas.
