  • 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.
