White tea from the Fujian province of China. Baimudan, also called "Pai Mu Tan" or "White Peony," is a sweet, mild tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout.
The freshly harvested leaf is allowed to wither dry in the sun. The natural oxidation which takes place during this withering gives White Peony beautiful, plush flavors (not unlike an oolong, flavor-wise). The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms. The liquor is golden and bright.
Clean, succulent floral-fruit flavor and rounded mouthfeel. If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, or even just tea in general, our White Peony tea will serve a wonderful introduction.
Baimudan is recommended by Dr. Oz as part of a weight loss regimen in combination with Bilberry, Chickweed and Aged Puerh.
Puer at Breakfast, Baimudan at Lunch, Chickweed during the day (afternoon or evening) and Bilberry at bedtime.
Suggested daily dosage is 2 to 3 (8oz) cups of Chickweed per day, 1 to 2 cups of Bilberry, and as many cups of Baimudan & Puer as you like.
Taking more of the Chickweed or Bilberry is not recommended as they can have uncomfortable and undesireable side effects - such as diarrhea, frequent urination, stomach cramps and related gastro-intestinal distresses.
