About Baimudan Reserve:

Baimudan tea (also known as White Peony) originated in China’s Fujian Province. Baimudan Reserve is an old style ‘sun wilted’ white tea. The new bud and one or two young leaves are plucked and allowed to wilt in the sun before being brought indoors for further processing. After several hours, the leaves are air-dried in special rotating tea ovens. The result is a fragrant, sweet and mellow tea.

There are several grades of Baimudan, which are distinguished by the age of the plants, location, season, and quality of leaves. Classic style Baimudan is made in April, when the young bud and leaf set is at its most flavorful. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined.

Ingredients: White Tea Leaves.
