Bai Mudan 2007

no_subtitle

A soothing, comforting tea for overcast afternoons or late nights, the youthful crispness of fresh white tea has been transformed by more than a decade of ageing into more mature notes: clean straw, aged wood, and petrichor, tied together by an overtone of cacao, putting one in mind of rainy afternoons in a dry old attic, sipping on hot cocoa. Boasting a large amount of white-haired buds for Bai Mudan, the liquor is a pale orange, with a full mouthfeel, but it can easily be steeped lighter or heavier, according to the drinker’s preference.
