Detail

Bai Mu Dan means "White peony" in Chinese.

It is a very delicate tea made of different pieces of leaves in their natural state: silvery tips, Souchong leaves, first and second leaves and stems.

Its woody flavor suggests the hazelnuts and chestnuts of autumn.

Dry leaves

Appearance: a large, downy bud.  

Colors: dark green with flashes of brighter green and silver. 

Aromas: very pronounced note of wicker and mown hay.

Brewed leaves (infusion)

Color: the leaves regain their green color while revealing their fragility

Aromas: evocative of freshly baked bread, with herbaceous peaks of dried grass.

Liquor

Color: straw

Texture: slight astringency appears if infused for a little too long

Flavors: very slightly sweet and acid; very noticeable umami.

Aromas: a floral attack (rose) which develops on a note reminiscent both of damp wicker and aromatic herbs (mint, thyme). Often the background evokes vanilla and cocoa.

Aromatic profile and length in the mouth: a few notes in common with Silver Needles, but with more power and personality. The notes are more intense and longer lasting.  

Our verdict: A superb white tea with silver buds. Beautifully delicate, it is made up of pieces of leaves of all kinds in their natural state: silver buds, Souchong, the first and second leaves, and stems.  

Story: Like Silver Needles, Bai Mu Dan is manufactured from the Da Bai (Great White) tea bush and takes its name from the bud and first leaves, which are similar in length and appearance to the petals of the peony.

This white tea is a recent innovation: traditionally only the bud was used in the production of Yin Zen, a rare and expensive white tea, and it is only since 1922 that the two or three leaves immediately below the bud have been included in its manufacture.

Harvested in spring over a very short period of time, Bai Mu Dan is mainly produced in the area surrounding the town of Fuding. It is popular with Chinese consumers, especially in the hottest regions of the country, because of its great thirst-quenching properties. It is an ideal initiation to white tea.
