Tasty white tea, but I do prefer the lighter kinds, such as silver needle. Nonetheless this carries a whole range of other flavors that someone may prefer over the more delicate white teas. This tea leaves you with a dark yellow color and has a heavy feeling in the mouth, carries a nutty/woody flavor, no astringency and just a hint of bitterness.
Bai Mu Dan (White Peony)
White Peony, also known as “Bai Mu Dan,” comes from the young leaves and silvery buds of the Da Bai tea tree varietal. This hand-picked selection yields a light amber liquor with an inviting toasted aroma. The taste is smooth and full-bodied with a subtle honey-like sweetness and notes of almond and spice.
