Invigorate yourself with Bai Mu Dan

Bai Mu Dan tea or white peony tea, is prepared in a very special way. In spring a leaf and a bud are plucked from old tea trees, they are then It sun dried. That means the energetic and healing rays of the sun, the source of all life on earth drench the tea leaves filling them with chi. Our Bai Mu Dan white tea is Fuding Da Bai style, which means the leaves are broad,  the shoots have plenty of white hair and it comes from northern Fujian province . White Peony is then set in the sun for three days, making it a true sun tea.

I have to be honest here, this tea is a challenge to make, it requires weather conditions  to be perfect for correct drying. An early rain, like bad news in the morning, spoils the entire batch. When the weather is right and the batch is perfected, then what you get is Bai Mu Dan.  The effect of sun chi in the leaves is very subtle, meditative, calming, and focusing.

Are you ready to taste the delicate flavors yet?

You should be patient, a minute of soaking in the bath will be good for the leaves, then sip. The flavors will unlock as the tender leaves begin to reveal themselves. They will drop their clothes and unfurl their arms and legs delicately revealing scents of honey, pepper, and melon for you take pleasure in.
