teasetcbaimudan1According to the Teas Etc. website, their Bai Mu Dan is USDA Certified Organic and grown in the mountains of the Fujian province in China. The aroma of the dry leaves is slightly reminiscent of a light floral garden in early spring. The slender leaves are lovely to look at, with the downy, white covering offering a hint of the delights to come.

I was careful to follow the specific brewing instructions included with my sample. The resulting cup was a pale golden yellow that reminded me somewhat of the color of champagne. The aroma of the brewed leaves is slightly more vegetal, but more fairly compared to fresh out of the garden goodness than overcooked asparagus. This is not a dainty barely noticeable white tea instead it offers a unique richness and even a bit of creaminess. A light sweetness comes into play in the finish.

While the second infusion was every bit as delicious as the first, I have to admit that I was most impressed with the actual brewing process of the second infusion. When I added the water to my clear brewing vessel for the second infusion, most of the slender leaves actually appeared to stand up from the base and sway somewhat in the water. This simple act proved to me once again that while I love the taste and the history of tea, it may actually be the process of making tea that appeals to me the most. This is a tea that I find most enjoyable on a quiet afternoon when I have time to fully appreciate and enjoy all that a beverage that was once reserved for emperors and the like, now has to offer even a simple tea lover like myself.
