Name: Imperial White Peony Pai Mu Tan

Luxury grade Imperial Bai Mu Dan White Peony tea that is harvested from the first flush of this year’s Spring. Fuding Province in China is a famous growing region known for producing three of the most famous Chinese teas; Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needle), Bai Lin Hong Cha (Golden Monkey), and Bai Mu Dan (White Peony). White Peony is a famous classic Chinese tea and is considered to be synonymous with wealth and honor in China.
Our Imperial Bai Mu Dan White Peony is one of the most incredibly vibrant and fresh Bai Mu Dan teas that we have ever tasted. Modern processing methods were used in which the leaves are fermented and processed indoors producing a brilliant green color and fresh flavor profile. The bright and clean leaves display the care and passion that went into the growing and crafting of this fine white tea.
This is the freshest and full-bodied of our delicate white teas, and once steeped you will appreciate how complex and delicate this fine tea is. Experience a beautiful light golden tea liquor that has a heady aroma of stone fruit, and fresh-cut grass. Its flavor is sweet and fruity and has a fresh green grass character, it finished with flowery heady notes and very little astringency.
For the best tea drinking experience, we recommend using a gaiwan and enjoying multiple infusions.
I REALLY like this tea. I made it according to the instructions with a 3 minute steep in hot water. It came out full and flavorful without any bitterness at all. I felt absolutely no need for anything sweet to go with this tea. It rather took me by surprise because I expected white tea leaves to create a rather anemic (for me) flavor. I think this tea will go on my steady pick list to keep a constant blend of it.
