* Required Fields

  • Beautiful mix of green colour leaves and juicy silver buds. When steeped resembling a ‘White Peony’. Also known as the 'White Monkey' in the West.
  • The real stuff from Fuding, Fujian: one of the first early Bai Mu Dan tea production regions.
  • Flowery aroma. Smooth & mellow taste with sweetness reminding you of apricot, peach and oranges.
  • Full flavour released steep after steep. Brew more tea from the same leaves than any other white tea.

Originated from Fuding, this beautiful white tea that’s part of Fujian province’s rich tea history. Bai Mu Dan (also known as 'White Peony' or 'Golden Monkey') consists of a beautiful mix of dark and vibrant green leaves. Different from other online offerings, our version is complemented with juicy buds that are covered with a delicate layer of silver hair.


While its generally believed that white tea should be steeped at low temperatures (70-80 C), we suggest to steep this Bai Mu Dan at 90 degrees Celsius (195 F). If you worry that this results into a bitter cuppa, don’t be. Even if you steep this white tea right with water at cooking temperature, the leaves and buds will still release a flowery aroma and a sweet peach, apricot and orange like flavour.

Tip: Notice how the leaves turn green when steeped surrounding the white silver buds, resembling a White Peony, hence the name of this tea. Definitely a beautiful scenery that you have to witness for yourself.

My evening beverage
I picked this tea as an evening beverage because white tea has less caffeine than other tea categories. My first steep was a bit too grassy, but this got better during the second steep when I let the water cool down a bit. Overall, i think it's quite a light cup. It’s smooth, simple and a bit refreshing. The floral aroma was not as strong as it says in the description, but that didn't ruin the experience I had. Review by Zhon (Posted on 9/30/2013)
I love bai mu tan tea and was curious to see how this attractively priced option from Teasenz tastes. It was lovely. This is with out doubt one of the authentic Peony teas you can get and it would be difficult to choose in a blind test between this and others at double the cost from other tea stores. Fragrant and with a subtle taste, I would highly recommend this variety to all! Review by Lizzie (Posted on 5/6/2013)
