Flavor notes: Classic BMD. Clover and a little cedarwood when hot; sweeter and milder iced.
Mouthfeel: A substantial lingering astringency which I find pleasant; a thin body; negligible lees
Appearance: Spindly but unbroken beautiful furry leaves; a clear liquor that ranges from pale yellow to a deeper mahogany color depending on the steep time and strength.

A staple tea. The best value BMD I’ve had; inexpensive but delicious. It’s great to make iced after dinner, or take to work/school in the morning. I brew it with a gaiwan sometimes just for kicks but it’s perhaps best brewed western-style by the parameters below or something similar. It can take a pretty long brew without getting bitter, like most white teas, so feel free to play around. (But remember to use a high volume of leaf because these leaves are both broad and spindly!)
