Da BaiTea Varietal

These beautiful downy Dragon Pearl white tea balls are pressed from the Weng Family’s early spring Bai Mudan. Bai Mudan, or "White Peony" includes a blend of downy silver buds and nearly equally downy young leaves. The suspended down makes the tea thick and rich. The Weng family grows their tea high above Fuding in Hulin using traditional sustainable farming techniques and careful air-drying to lock in the flavor of the fresh leaf.

" Instead of reverting to pesticides and fertilizers like larger factory farms, Weng Wenkan grows soybeans and canola around his crops. The insects prefer the beans and leave the tea mostly unharmed. Growing beans alongside tea reduces total yield per acre, but increases biodiversity and provides natural insect management. All of this makes his tea taste better... "
