White Peony "Bai Mu Dan"
This spring-picked white tea consists of both unopened tea buds and the top two leaves which are all allowed to leisurely wither in the sun. The result is an optimum – minimal - dash of oxidation and therefore astringency, offset by complex flavor hints of floral and fruit blossoms. The finish is wonderfully well-rounded. The leaf shows some silver tip but is predominantly greenish-brown in color with a long, somewhat twisted leaf style.
