Bai mu dan is one of the best-known white teas. Also known as white peony, it comes from the tea plant known as 'chaicha' or narcissus, which grows in the Fujian province of China. The leaf shows many shades of green, and is large with numerous structures and a good portion of silvery-white leaf tips. Only the tea bud and two lower leaves are plucked. The tea is then slow-dried in the fresh open air. The resulting cup is a shimmering amber, and the taste is fresh, mellow and nutty. A tea with a soothing and gentle effect which is high in antioxidants. Great from lunchtime onwards.
