About: Our Bai Mu Dan is made in Fujian province, Fuding county which lies between Fujian and Zhejiang province in elevation approx. 900m. Bai Mu Dan is made with one bud and two leaves after the individual tea buds that make up Silver Needle have been gathered. Then it is allowed to wither (air-dry) naturally in the air outside or inside the tea factory, which enhances the sweetness and mouth-feel and then it is bake-dried. It is the least processed tea from all six classes. Harvested in spring, mid April 2019.
