Pai Mu Tan


Pai Mu Tan is otherwise known as Bai Mudan or White Peony. It is considered the most natural of teas, maintaining delicate white hairs on the leaves. White tea is widely believed to be China’s earliest form of tea, based on the fact that its processing simply consists of only drying the leaves.

Mild, sweet, full-flavoured and smooth with a light nuttiness. It can be likened to drinking liquid silk.

The selection of tea leaves in white tea production is extremely stringent. Only the two youngest leaves with a bud are picked and air-dried for white tea. These two leaves and a bud are considered the sweetest and most flavourful part of the tea plant.

Originating in the Fujian province of China, it is considered the oldest and most “natural” of teas. It is known for the small white hairs on the ends of the leaves. These leaves are wilted naturally in drying rooms or in the sun without being rolled to prevent oxidation. This allows for the small white hairs to be present on the leaves in amongst the stalks and buds.

Directions: 1 heaped teaspoon per 200ml water. Steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
