    • Da BaiTea Varietal

    Bai Mu Dan (white peony) is picked with a combination of early spring buds and tender leaves, full of bud down that adds texture and richness to the tea. This Ming Qian harvest is full of rich sesame notes and vibrant fresh olive oil undertones to complement the smooth, honeyed aftertaste and zesty Italian citrus highlights. This intense complexity comes from the wild environment and zero-intervention farming that the Wu Family practices on their high mountain plot, allowing the tea to pick up flavor and depth from the surrounding biodiverse plant life.


  • 'White tea is one of the easiest ways to discover the effect of buds in the taste of tea. Most teas on the market are made with leaves, which have amore robust intensity to them. Some teas are made entirely or partially from buds which have a very different flavor and texture to be aware of'
