This classic white tea is grown in Fujian Province, China, and is known as Bai Mudan, or White Peony. Leaf and bud sets are hand-picked in spring and air-dried; the resulting tea is very lightly oxidized, yet maintains a unique fresh quality.
The leaves are voluminous; use a few tablespoons per serving, and prepare with water below boiling to highlight the bright sorrel aroma and refreshing, sweet-crisp flavor—like biting into a just-picked green apple. Try infusing the same leaves multiple times. Despite its delicate texture, white tea can hold up well through several steeps.
