Review of Bai Mu Dan

9 of 105 of 55 of 597 of 100

I love white tea. I've had countless varieties. Bai mudan has never been my favorite. In my experience, it never matched up to bai hao yinzhen. This particular bai mudan compltely revolutionized my view.

The taste is just as pure as any yinzhen, but much sweeter. You won't need sugar, honey, or even a stevia leaf for this tea. The floral aroma brings out a world of experiences. For me, it's a misty morning in the mountains. I've never felt more relaxed after drinking a tea.

The value can't be beat. For such a high quality, fair trade, organic tea, you would be paying upwards of $7/oz anywhere else.

I actually tend to prefer bai mudan / white peony to bai hao yinzhen / silver needle. This, combined with the fact that the bai hao yinzhen tends to be much pricier, makes me think that bai mudan usually offers better value. I also like shou mei, although it can be hard to find good shou mei (or any shou mei) in the US.

I'm particularly interested to try this tea to see if I notice any difference in taste, as it originates in Wuyuan in Jiangxi, an area where white tea is not normally produced. I have tried white teas from quite a few regions now, and from my experience, the same type of tea produced in different regions tends to taste pretty different. But I think all the bai mu dan tea I've had so far has been produced in Fujian.
