Bai Mu Dan White Tea
This Bai Mudan is a fresh pre-Qing Ming Spring 2013 harvest from Fuding, the most famous white tea growing region in China. Hand picked and quickly processed to lock in the “fresh from the field” taste that fine white tea preserves, this beautiful tea is one of the most complex and nuanced white teas we have ever tried. Made from a mixture of silver needle white buds and young green leaves, this tea achieves a balance and fully engages the palate in a way that traditional silver needle often struggles to provide.
This spring harvest is extremely sweet like cane sugar and crisp like fresh greens, with intriguing spicy ginger notes in the background and a lychee citrus aftertaste. The body grows creamier and creamier as it steeps out. Astoundingly, we’ve steeped this tea about thirty times and it has continued to yield flavor. These leaves are also extremely forgiving for very long steepings or cold brewed summer iced tea.
