Origin: Fuding, Fujian, China
Tea Type: White Tea
Harvested: Spring 2021

Why is white tea not white? Because it got its name from its white downy feature. A sun withered tea with very little interference (i.e. no bruising) during tea-making, Bai Mu Dan managed to maintain its one bud and two leaves form intact, which resembled the look of a budding white peony.
This Bai Mu Dan from our Vol. 2 is grown in Fuding, an area that is famous for its loamy soil and mild climate for white tea. There are really only 2 steps in processing white tea – withering and drying. This means the tea relied heavily on the quality of the leaves and our tea producer’s experience and skills in managing the process. The result is a tea that’s fruity with hay-like sweetness, delicious and far from typical.
