Bai Mu Dan 2009

Weight

A beautifully aged tea that comforts and rejuvenates.

Dry leaves: notes of sweet tobacco leaves, dried wild flowers, and date paste

Wet leaves after a rinse: notes of prune, vanilla and aromatic wood

Taste: The first sip was sweet, velvety, warm and comforting. The flavour combined plum, red jujube, exotic wood, sweet cinnamon and caramel. It relaxed and grounded me instantly. As I continued with more infusions, the floral notes (mountain flowers, scents in autumn apple orchard) became more apparent. I started to feel a sweet cooling sensation in the throat. With the lingering floral aromas and the rising warmth of the tea, I felt centred and rejuvenated.

Other names: Pai Mu Tan, White Peony Tea
