CHINESE BAI MU DAN GRADE

CHINESE BAI MU DAN ORIGIN
Our Bai Mu Dan is grown in the Bo Yang Organic Tea Garden, Xiamen Chan Village, Fuding, Eastern China. Also known as Pai Mu Tan or White Peony this tea is produced from one leaf shoot (unopened bud) and two newly sprouted leaves. The freshly picked leaves simply withered in the sun to stop the oxidation. They are therefore only slightly oxidised. This withering gives this tea its beautiful depth of flavour.
This compressed tea is created from loose Bai Mu Dan. The leaf is softened using steam and then formed into its ‘chocolate bar’ shape using a mould.
