Pai Mu Tan White Tea per ounce
For much of the time since they were developed during the T’ang Dynasty, (618-907 AD), white teas were reserved for members of the Imperial Courts. The reason? There simply wasn’t enough to go round. Over time, production ramped up and by 1885, China was exporting specialty white varieties like Silver Needle and Pai Mu Tan, both still produced to this day.
White tea was, and still is, considered a true tea owing to the fact that it undergoes so little processing. This tea is simply plucked and dried. That’s it. We’ve sourced a selection of incredible organic whites worthy of an Imperial Court, now available to anyone. You can thank us later.
ORGANIC PAI MU TAN
Full leaf ranges in color from pale green to silvery with lots of nice tips. Round and full-bodied, Pai Mu Tan produces a cup that dazzles with subtle layers of peach and floral notes. Incredible in every way.
Tasting notes: Clear, slightly pale cup with a fresh aroma and a smooth, velvety flavor. Delicate jammy notes reminiscent of Keemun or a mild Bordeaux.
