Bai Mu Dan
Origin: South Fujian, China
Flavor Profile: Smooth, sweet, woody flavor. Hints of roasted walnuts, sweet corn, and hot cocoa. A warm aroma reminiscent of the toasty sweetness of dry walnut brownies.
Tea Story: Bai Mu Dan, also know as White Peony, is one of the most common styles of traditional white tea. But there is nothing common about this exquisite tea. Meticulously picked, this tea consists of two tealeaves and a silvery bud. Gentle processing, and a unique withering process, result in an amber-orange infusion with low astringency, weighty mouth-feel and a mild flavor that pairs well with most foods. You love the smooth, sweet flavor and slightly woody, toasted aroma of this fresh Bai Mu Dan.
Samovarian Poetry: The best Bai Mudan we’ve ever had. Fujianese white tea made from two leaves and one bud. A hidden sweet maltiness, with notes of dark Marin redwood groves, & mellow muscatel.
Food Pairing: Sip your Bai Mu Dan White tea while savoring sweet hot corn bread slathered in sweet cream. Perfectly paired with any dessert, why not drink it while nibbling on home made walnut brownies (whether or not you make them dry is up to you). At Samovar Tea Lounge, we love to pair the Bai Mu Dan White Tea with the Honeycomb and cheese platter. Delish!
