A young monk asked the wise tea master Lao Cha:
– Sensei, what tea is capable of cooling one down during the hot summer days, and warm one up during the cold nights in the mountains?
– It’s Bai Mu Dan White Tea. This tea is healthy and its mellow. The slightly sweet taste makes it easy to enjoy.
The Organic White Peony (Bai MuDan) tea was harvested in April of 2016 and is made of organic Fuding Dabai tea leaves, which grow at around 800 meters elevation. After one year of aging, the grassy aroma from the fresh tea is fading and begins to emit pekoe and delicate fragrance. After brewing, the tea is light and clear, with a soy milk aroma. Refreshing and mellow.
