Delicate, Fresh, Velvety
Fujian Province, China
An incredibly complex and flavorful organic white tea, traditionally and minimally processed.
White teas have quite the history. Initially reserved for members of the Imperial Courts during the T'ang Dynasty, it wasn't until 1885 when China started exporting it. White tea goes through very little processing. The fresh leaf is delivered to the factory on
foot, withered, lightly rolled and then dried naturally—no further processing required.
This organic Pai Mu Tan is an excellent example of this simplicity of production. The leaf is full and ranges in color from pale green to silvery with lots of nice tips. The contrast between the leaves gives the tea a very natural look that in turn gives way to a very pure, natural cup. Rounder and more full-bodied than Silver Tip grade, Pai Mu Tan produces a cup that dazzles with subtle layers of peach and floral notes. Brew a pot and raise a cup to its history and past!
How to Brew

We ship Monday-Thursday. Orders are usually fulfilled the production day after they are placed (for example, orders placed on Monday will ship on Tuesday). Orders placed Thursday-Sunday will be fulfilled and shipped on Monday.
Freshness is critical to fully enjoying coffee. We roast to order to ensure your coffee is at peak freshness when it arrives. Sometimes our shipping partners experience delays due to weather, heightened demand, technical issues, pandemics, or aliens. All of which is out of our hands, except the aliens, but that's not for here.
If your package is delayed, let us know and we'll track it down and escalate its delivery. If it's delayed more than 2 weeks past the shipment date, and your order includes coffee, we'll either refund your money or ship you fresh coffee at no cost.
We roast our coffee and select our teas to express the life it lived and to honor the skilled people who cultivate it. We’re passionate about sourcing, creating, and discovering products to elevate everyday life while strengthening connections and community.
