Bai Mu Dan, or White Peony, is a Chinese white tea made from two leaves and a bud of the Da Bai (Big White) varietal. Grown in Fujian, China at high altitudes in cool climates, the plants are blanketed in mist encouraging nutrients to be stored in the leaves. The result is a beautiful, complex cup that has been enjoyed for centuries.

The pale yellow liquor has a light toasted aroma with a hint of malt. The palate is sweet, and floral, accented by a touch of smoke, with a light buttery finish. Hints of sweet grass are complimented by midtones of nuttiness, with a touch of lemon zest.
