Pai Mu Tan
Pai Mu Tan (also spelt Bai Mu Dan) is probably the best-known Chinese white tea and a classic from the southern province of Fuding.
The mix of green and brown (oxidised) leaves and silver tips are typical for a good Pai Mu Tan.
Very refreshing and clean with a slightly fruity-grassy flavour. The taste is surprisingly rich and complex.
