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!
