Bai Mu Dan (白牡丹), or Bai Mundan is also known as White Peony, is one of the most popular Chinese white teas. It is made from the Da Bai (大白) tea cultivar, which is native to the Fujian province of China. Bai Mu Dan is a minimally processed tea, meaning that the leaves are simply withered and dried under natural conditions. This preserves the delicate flavour and aroma of the tea.
Bai Mu Dan tea leaves are typically large and have a silvery-white down. When brewed, they produce a pale amber cup of tea with a light, sweet flavour. Bai Mu Dan is often described as having notes of honey, melon, and fresh flowers. It is a smooth and refreshing tea that can be enjoyed hot or cold.
In addition to its delicious flavour, Bai Mu Dan tea is also known for its health benefits. White tea is the least processed of all teas, meaning that it contains the highest levels of antioxidants.
