Description: Oh the 1890s! A positively smashing time to be alive. It was a time of many firsts. The colour mauve was invented, Sherlock Holmes was first published and the first Boxer dog show was held in Munich. But the best part of the decade? For the first time in roughly a thousand years, China began exporting White teas! The reason for this change in the industry came after 1885 when varietals of tea were isolated to make Silver Needle and other speciality white teas like this Pai Mu Tan. Prior to this, there simply wasn't enough white tea to go around. Since the early days of white tea export, the process by which the tea is made has largely remained unchanged the fresh leaf is delivered to the factory on foot, withered, lightly rolled and then dried naturally - no further processing required. This organic Pai Mu Tan is an excellent example of this simplicity of production. The leaf is full and ranges in colour from pale green to silvery with lots of nice tips. Rounder and more full-bodied than Silver Tip grade, Pai Mu Tan produces a cup that dazzles with subtle layers of peach and floral notes. Clear slightly pale cup with a fresh aroma and a smooth velvety flavour. Delicate jammy notes reminiscent of Keemun or a mild Bordeaux.

Serving Suggestion: We would urge you to drink this tea naked. The subtle nuance of flavours is easily overwhelmed by milk sugar or lemon. For iced drinks either cold brew overnight or brew as for hot but use more tea leaves to make a more intense flavour
