“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.
