From Sloane Tea Company

Plucked only during a few short weeks in spring, this Bai Mu Dan white from the Fujian province of China, also known as “white peony”, pairs perfectly with the sweet succulence of Asian pear. A mouth-watering masterpiece that is both delicate and inspiring.

For best results, use water that has just come off the boil and steep 1 teaspoon per 6 ounces of water for 4-6 minutes.
Savour straight.

oh man. So i cold brewed this one just for kicks. I am digging the cold brew quite a bit! Unsweetned there was a bit of pear hanging out in the background, and then with a little bit of sugar added to this, there’s more going on. Another white tea, so not my go to tea, but this isn’t half bad. It’s still not my perfect pear tea but it’s a refreshing tea nonethless that has a really nice base that it “pears” well with haha.

Iced 8 min or more

Sipdown, 138. Cold brewed the last bit of this tea! It was only a tiny bit left, but I did a tiny cold brew and it worked. It was kind of amazingly sweet! The pear came out moreso in the cold brew, and even toyed on the slightly fake edge of things, but it still maintained itself. White teas can be tough to cold steep, I find, but this turned out pretty well.

Thank you Sil for this sample.

This is my first cold steep and I have been so excited to try it. I steeped 2-2.5 teaspoons (double amount I would normally use for hot tea) and used filtered water. Stored it in an airtight liquid storer (I think it’s for soup but works great for this) and left it in the fridge for approx 15 hours.

I’m glad I prepared these yesterday because I have the start of a hangover thanks to the JD I was gulping down yesterday. Big mistake!

Separating the leave out was easy with a strainer and piece of kitchen cloth to catch the small pieces. Left behind is a pale yellow tea with a very gentle and fresh pear scent.

In flavour it’s a delicate and refreshing as it’s scent. The Bai Mu Dan is still sweet and ever so slightly floral but in comparison to it’s warm form this is much milder in flavour. I think it works though, softer than an iced tea made traditionally but keeping enough flavour to be tasty. Instead of a tea this is more like a flavoured water drink, could be because it’s white based.

I think I preferred this being cold steeped than I would the usual hot method. I will definitely experiment with cold steeping in the near future. :)


i have a hard time with white teas but i find this one to be fairly lovely and not overly floral :)

Sipdown #29

Another sipdown made possible by Sil. Yay! Oooh, I love white peony! The brewed tea aroma is white peony and juicy pear. The initial flavor is the lovely white base. The aftertaste is thickly pear and a little weird. I think it actually tastes more like blue raspberry than pear. The best part of this tea is definitely the base. Thank you Sil!!!

This blend takes well to multiple infusions and has a nice orangish liquor. However, once I finish my tin I will not repurchase this tea. While the tea does smell and taste of fruit, I don’t really get a sense of pear. Both the dry leaves and the infusion have a smoky, dusty note to them that I don’t like. I want my fruit teas to smell and taste juicy, and this one doesn’t deliver.

Bonus note: the tins that Sloane Tea makes are both durable and beautiful. Once they’re empty, they make great storage containers for other things like pens or loose knick-knacks. I’m really looking forward to finishing this tea just so I can have another tin to use!
