Introducing our White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) white tea, produced in the Fujian Province of Eastern China.

The least processed of all teas, white teas are named after the tiny white or silver hairs on the tea bud as it develops at the tip of the shoot. Once plucked, the buds and leaves are simply laid on to large blankets in the sun to wither and dry naturally.

Unlike Silver Needle teas, this tea is plucked later in the season and is a mixture of bud and large leaf classed as Bai Mu Dan (White Peony) although both are produced from the same plant varietal, the Da Bai.

This tea produces a light and refreshing liquor, albeit with a slightly fruitier character than you would find with a Silver Needle white tea.

Part of our Sommelier's Selection, this tea is available exclusively through our online shop!

PREPARATION

Steep 1tsp per cup for 4-5 minutes in 80°C water. Enjoy without milk.

TEA-RIVIA

The drying process for white tea can last between one and three days before they are briefly piled and baked dry for packing. Throughout this process, the leaves are consistently handled with care to prevent breakage of the cellular structure as this can cause unnecessary oxidation of the tea, compromising its quality.

INGREDIENT

Chinese Bai Mu Dan White Tea.

ALLERGEN WARNING

May contain traces of cereals, almonds, hazelnuts, milk, soya, mustard and sulphur dioxide.
