Pai Mu Tan is an exquisite white tea with a very light colour and a natural fruity flavour. Believed to be high in antioxidants, it is a refreshing drink for any time of day.

It is grown in the mountains in the Fujian Province of China. Also known as White Peony, it is made from the silvery buds and first two leaves of each bush, harvested in early spring when the leaves are most tender. This tea is dried in the sun as soon as it is picked, to capture its fresh sweetness.

Pai Mu Tan should be brewed very lightly to make a pale green infusion with a mild sweetness and complex honey aroma often compared to muscatel wines.


100% White Tea.

Packed in an environment where nuts are handled.

Brew a Perfect Cup

Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.

This fresh and delicate tea is similar to green tea (perhaps lighter) and tastes lovely with a teaspoon of honey. For my tastes, I would brew a little longer than the recommended 2-3 minutes but best to err on the side of caution and get to know your own tastes.
