Organic Bai Mu Dan White Tea
- This superb organic tea is made from the uppermost two leaves and a bud, plucked in early spring and withered and dried in the sun before the buds are able to open. The leaves of this organic tea from China range from green to brown with plenty of buds that show a very light green almost grey white color, covered with a delicate velvety down.
Bai Mu Dan White Tea
Cup Characteristics: The taste is deliciously rich, sweet cream butter with light, pleasing vegetal notes.
Infusions: A pale yellow infusion
Ingredients: Luxury white tea
Slightly astringent, it leaves behind just enough of the smooth sweetness to make you anxious for more
Hot Tea Method: Bring freshly drawn cold water to less than boil(180-183 degrees). Place 1 teaspoon of tea for each cup into the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-5 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Even though milk and a dash of sugar help enhance the flavor character on this tea, it is perfectly acceptable to consume this tea ‘straight-up’
Iced Tea Method: (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly less than boiled(180-183 degrees) water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water]. Please note that this tea may tend to go cloudy or ‘milky’ when poured over ice; a perfectly normal characteristic of some high quality black teas and nothing to worry about!
