This white tea from China has a prominent peach aroma and a flavor that is very smooth, very peachy, with lots of body for a white tea. If you're looking for a white tea that is a little silky, a little sweet, and has a little something extra-this is the tea. It is made using White Peony (Bai Mu Dan) white tea.
Pai or Bai Mu Dan is a type of white tea made from the unopened buds and first leaves on the tea plant. Leave picked after this time cannot be used to create white tea. The leaves are then allowed to wither and dry in the sun, keeping the leaves close to their original format.
Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
