The pleasant aroma and taste of pomegranate is infused into this high quality white tea.
Bai mu dan, also called Pai Mu Tan, is the second highest grade of white tea under silver needle. Only the top two leaves and a bud are picked. These leaves must show a very light green almost gray white color and be covered with velvet peach fuzz down. The leaves are not steamed or pan-fired, like green tea, but naturally withered and dried in the sun. If mechanical drying is used, it is a baking process at temperatures less than 100˚F.
Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 - 4 minutes.
