White Peony (Bai Mu Dan)

“Bai Mu Dan” Crisp, full flavor. Our White Peony is harvested and traditionally processed from the first plucking of spring. We buy this tea mindful its leaves should offer a mix of light and darker greens. Plenty of silver buds create a nuanced and sweet taste that results in a "round" mouth feel that will linger. This lot has a comparatively high percentage of unopened buds, which helps to maintain a rich and consistent flavor. Processed by withering in a cool to warm room on bamboo racks and then heat dried, its blend of leaf shapes, colors and buds yield a clear, straw-like cup liquor and tastes of melon, grape and herbs.
