Bai Mu Dan

Bai Mu Dan is a kind of Chinese white teas. The most famous Chinese white tea is Silver Needle (or called Bai Hao Yinzhen) while it is one of the 10 Most Famous Chinese Teas. Compare to Silver Needle, Bai Mu Dan is a cheaper choice for people who like white teas but cannot afford drinking Silver Needle everyday.
The tea leaf of Bai Mu Dan is long, straight and usually covered in white. When you taste it, you will feel it is smooth, delicate and highly refreshing. Most Bai Mu Dan is produced in spring in Fujian province, China.

Except Bai Mu Dan, people may also call this kind of tea as ‘Pai Mu Tan’ or White Peony or ‘White Hairy Monkey Tea’.

As we mentioned before, we would like to use porcelain or glass tea set to brew green teas, white teas and flowering teas. So, I recommend using porcelain tea pot and tea cups while brewing Bai Mu Dan.
