Bai Mu Dan
This premium white tea has a delicate lingering fragrance and a fresh mellow sweet taste devoid of astringency or grassy flavour with a shimmering clear infusion.
The processing rules require this tea only be picked at a certain time of year. It is not picked on days that may be raining or if dew has not dried or if there is frost on the ground. No purple buds are allowed and the stems must not be too long or too short. Leaves damaged by wind, handling, insects or that are partially open are rejected and put into a lower grade. The best Bai Mu Dan is produced using the two leaves and a bud proportion and is naturally withered to produce leaves that are not black or red but green in colour.
