This beautiful tea has a color pattern that resembles our Oriental Beauty and Formosa Oolong. The main difference is the level of oxidization: Oriental Beauty is closer to a black tea and our Bai MuDan is closer to a green tea. The tea is very tippy.
The flavor is complex, with perfume-like floral notes higher up in the nose. We detect rose, which is similar to peony but more mild. Lower in the mouth is a sweeter, fruity flavor. Mostly pit fruit--peaches, plum. The aftertaste has notes of Dragon’s Eye, a tropical fruit. Expect a clean finish and quick taper.
Our Bai MuDan leaf imparts four flavorful cups, but we strongly suggest using lower temperatures of around 82c maximum to get the best out of this tea. Lower temperature produces a more floral, green tea, while higher temperatures make the tea more fruity.
