Dry Leaf Appearance: Large white leaf

Liquor Appearance: Pale green

Flavour Profile: Delicate, nutty

Pai Mu Tan (White Peony) is produced in the Fujian Province of Eastern China. During the manufacture of Ying Zhen (Silver Needle), freshly plucked tea buds are laid on to large blankets in the sun to wither and dry naturally. Once the leaf has withered enough, it is sorted into just three grades: First is the pure bud, needle like in appearance, classed as Ying Zhen (Silver Needle), secondly is a mixture of bud and large leaf classed as Pai Mu Tan (White Peony) and finally the remaining leaf Shou Mei (Longevity Eyebrow). The liquor of Pai Mu Tan is light and delicate with a slightly stronger nutty character than you would find with Ying Zhen. This tea is an excellent accompaniment to shell fish and can be drunk either hot or cold.

Brewing our teas

Brewing our teas is pretty straight forwards but you will get the most out of them if you follow some simple instructions.

White & Green Teas

Did you know?

White and green teas are covered in a fine dust. By throwing away that first brew you are effectively washing away the dust.
This reduces the bitterness in the cup and makes for a more enjoyable brew!

Degrees of oxidisation

White teas undergo very little if any oxidisation and you are effectively just drinking the dried leaves.

Green teas undergo a little more oxidisation than white teas.
