    The Wu family’s multi-generational white tea plantings have grown wild and untended for decades, allowing the specific balance of wildflowers and competing plants to influence the flavor and complexity of their tea. The Wu Family likes to keep their Bai Mu Dan picked on each several mu plot separate so that the elevation, angle of the sun and balance of rock and trees can come through in the finished tea. Plot 26 yields a rich, sweet clover-like flavor with a very refined honey or cream texture and cinnamon-cardamom spice, very much in line with the classic Chinese ideal. This refined and elegant brew is a beautiful expression of both the land and the precise, demanding craftsmanship of the Wu family.


  • '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'
