Bai Mu Dan (also known as Pai Mu Tan or White Peony) originally from Fujian province, is now produced in many countries. This superb brew 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 range from green to brown with plenty of buds that show a very light green almost grey white colour, covered with a delicate velvety down. The pale yellow infusion has a subtle lingering fragrance, and a mellow sweet vegetal taste.
