Bai Mu Dan - Fujian White Tea Giddapahar Wiry - Darjeeling Tea
Bai Mu Dan means "white peony" in English, and this tea is supposedly named because it looks like a peony flower. Although the resemblance to a peony flower is slight to non-existent, the dry leaves are attractive, large and wiry and are many different shades of silver, white, green, yellow and brown. The infused liquor is a lovely pale yellowish gold that feels medium to light bodied in the mouth. It delivers a lovely subtly sweet flavor with some floral and vegetal elements, a touch of fruitiness, and very little to no astringency. The flavor of this Bai Mu Dan is similar to the Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needles) we also carry from this region, but it has more flavor from the leaf material that comes across as a stronger/fuller flavor in the cup.
The name "wiry" comes from the the long, thin appearance of the leaves, and this unique First Flush Darjeeling tea is more than a bit like a Japanese Shiraore or Karigane, which is also made from a mix of stems and leaves. This wiry's dry leaves are a mix of long, thin, deep olive green leaves flecked with bits of lighter green leaf and a healthy portion of chestnut brown stems. When infused, the liquor is a bright amber color with a slightly green, nutty aroma. In the cup, the tea is clean, crisp and complex with a wonderfully nutty, slightly floral flavor and low astringency.

Bai Hao Yin Zhen - Fujian White Tea Ye Sheng Hong Cha - Wild Yunnan Black Tea
The processing of white tea is quite straightforward. It is simply picked, carefully withered in the sun and/or indoors in a climate controlled environment and then dried. This very simple processing creates a very mild but distinctive finished product that, when steeped, allows the subtle but distinctive floral aroma and flavor elements unique to the Da Bai Hao tea cultivar to take center stage in the cup. The infused liquor is a lovely pale yellow that feels fairly light bodied in the mouth. It delivers a lovely, subtly sweet flavor with hints of super-fresh green vegetables and mild floral elements. The aftertaste is surprisingly mouth-coating, sweet & long lasting for such a mild, sweet tea.
This black tea has a distinctive appearance with its mix of long, twisted black leaves, brownish-purple buds and the occasional greenish brown young leaf mixed in. The aroma of the dry leaves is difficult to describe, but it has a mix of fruity sweetness and a bit of the evergreen & honey aroma associated with other Ye Sheng/wild variety tea (like Ya Bao, which is produced from a similar cultivar). When infused, this tea produces an aromatic, crystal clear, reddish-amber infusion. The flavor incorporates the fruity-sweet and honey & evergreen elements from the aroma with more classic, malty, "black tea" type flavors into a complex infusion that leaves a lovely, lingering aftertaste in the mouth.
