Perfect naturally withered white tea depends on conditions that are neither too hot nor too cold. The top two leaves and bud should show a very light green, almost grey white colour and be covered in a velvet peach fuzz down. You'll see from examining this Pai Mu Tan, the tea maker did a first class job! A refreshing tea with a fresh aroma that can be enjoyed any time of day.

    Heavenly China Pai Mu Tan

    Posted by Mary Cooper on Mar 23, 2024

    Absolutely delighted with the quality of this tea. Since losing my previous supplier of this type of white tea, I had only been able to buy silver needle white tea, which I don t like as much. My first cup of your China Pai Mu Tan was so enjoyable and made me realise just how much I had missed this tea type. I will definitely buy again and I am looking forward to trying other teas, which I bought at the same time, but have not yet opened. Easy to order online and delivered very quickly, excellent and personal service from Anita. Thank you.
