dragon-pearl-white.jpgDragon Pearl Tea company’s tea is organically grown in the Fujian Mountains on the southeast coast of mainland China. Bai Mu Dan is one of their white teas which means it is an unfermented and unprocessed natural tea leaf. Some experts consider Bai Mu Dan to be the white that is most similar to green tea.

The leaves have an inviting smell similar to celery with floral notes. I brewed one generous teaspoon in six ounces of 175 degree water and steeped the tea for three minutes (which is probably the longest you would want to steep a white tea).

The liquor is a mix of yellow and green and is rather thick or full-bodied for a white tea. It has a refreshing and healthful taste. As I drank it, the thought crossed my mind that the tea is as refreshing as a good salad. However, it did develop a slightly bitter taste as it cooled. The second steeping was as good as the first.

Even if you don’t think you like white teas, I would recommend giving this one a try.
