    Our Bai Mu Dan comes from Fuding County, Fujian Province. Its two leaf and a bud combination comes from the Da Bai tea tree, picked in mid-April after the individual tea buds that make up Silver Needle have been gathered.

    Once picked, the leaves undergo a gradual "fade", during which time, the leaves are slightly enzymatically oxidized before they are given a final low temperature bake. This classic white tea crafting method enhances the sweetness and mouth feel of this tea, while preserving the natural character of the tea leaves.

    Bai Mu Dan brews a light golden infusion with a hint of sweetness reminiscent of dried apricot and almonds.

  • Brewing Guide

    Bai Mu Dan takes well to longer steep times. The leaves deliver more flavor when steeped longer, while the leaf buds prevent any significant amount of astringency from developing.

    We recommend rinsing the leaves prior to brewing to ensure that they are properly pre-moistened.
