Bai mu dan (or 'pai mu dan'), also known as White Peony, is a national Chinese flower. When you steep this tea, you’ll see that the green leaves are surrounding the silver needle buds resembling a White Peony, hence its name. While a loose leaf bai mu dan is great for drinking it fresh, this white tea cake is perfect for long-term storage allowing the leaves to acquire a mellow sweet flavor.

To steep this tea you can follow the temperature and brewing duration in the 'additional information' section. Add some leaves in your teapot and only fill up the teapot for 1/3 to rinse the leaves, while at the same time warming up your teaware. Then proceed with the first brew.

Once you've purchased your cake, read our white tea cake storage guide.

More balanced than silver needle
I got both the silver needle and bai mu dan cake. While the silver needle cake is smoother and softer, I like the additional bite of this bai mu dan cake. I think I like this cake more, because the mix of leaves and buds allows for a more balanced flavour, relative to a full silver needle cake. The latter is still very nice to have though. I'm curious how the cakes will further ripe while it store them away. Review by Terence (Posted on 2/19/2018)
