This Bai Mu Dan was harvested in Fujian in April 2011. It has won a Great Taste Award Gold Medal, and it sports some of the most beautiful leaves. A combination of smooth and fuzzy white, brown, and green leaves, after 5 minutes at 170°, they brew into a crisp, bright yellow liquor.

The vibrant, sweet scent pairs nicely with the sweet flavour. Citrus notes prick the tongue, cutting through the strongly mellow grape and grass flavour. The finish is lingering and sweet, an excellent end. As I prefer my white teas, it's relaxed and mellow, but it's not boring. Steep 2 is crisp with hints of asparagus and nuttiness in the finish.

Despite its illustrious gold medal and organic label, this is a very affordable white, making it a great everyday tea. As I've frequently complained, organic teas often taste flat to me, but this is every bit as complex and vibrant as its counterparts. The organic is just a bonus. This tea is definitely a winner, in more ways than one.
