From Yunnan Sourcing

Fuding is the home to three famous teas. Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needles), Bai Lin Hong Cha (aka Golden Monkey), and Bai Mu Dan (aka White Peony). Fuding area teas enjoy fair weather and rich loamy soil giving them a special sweet and fruity quality. Our “White Peony” is harvested from first flush of Spring 2018 harvested tea.

The taste is sweet and fruity, with very little astringency. We recommend brewing with 90C water gong fu style to get the best taste from this wonderful tea!

Origin: Fuding, Fujian Province

First Flush Spring 2018 Harvest

This Bai Mu Dan is enjoyable, but nothing special. I’ve had better ones at this price point. The most memorable aspect of it is probably its fragrance. It is floral and grassy as one would expect, but it is interesting. I could smell some rapeseed and green apple ice cream among other less prevalent aromas and a generic meadow-like feeling. The taste is somewhat metallic (brass?), savoury (grass and vegetables like pattypan squash) and has a medicinal/herbal notes too. It also has a tart finish that evolves into a biting and sweet aftertaste with pear flavour. Mouthfeel is very smooth and delicate with a watery texture and a medium to full body.

I have the 2017. Nothing too special like you said. Bought 250g of purple moonlight white to age. I know Fuding white teas are more famous, but I should probably focus more on Yunnan whites as I expect them to appeal to me more.
