White Tea, Bai Mu Dan

Lady White Tea was the fairest maiden in all the land. She was adored by her subjects, the Pekoe, for her unrivaled beauty, soothing voice, and heavenly complexion. White Tea’s fairy tale isn’t the most adventurous one – no dragons to slay and no prince to kiss. However, her kind words and grace will enamor you all the same.

White tea is one of the most expensive teas in the tea world – the saffron of tea, if you will. White tea is composed of only the youngest buds from a tea plant and each of these buds must be picked by hand. The leaves are then withered and air-dried. No roasting or further oxidation takes place so that the delicate flavor is preserved.

The aroma of the dried tea is rich of apricots and cranberries. The pour is a lemon juice color and you’ll find the aroma softened. The flavor is akin to wind blowing through an apricot orchard; the air picking up a whispered conversation you can’t quite make out. Are they sweet words or astringent ones? Only another sip will tell.
