What makes Bai Mudan unique is the balance between its delicate flavors and its fuller flavors. Compared to Bai Hao Yin Zhen (Silver Needle White), premium Bai Mudan usually consists of one bud and two open leaves.

Since most white teas like Bai Mudan are normally mild in flavor, you tend to want to steep them longer or using higher temperatures. The problem with this is that most of the Bai Mudan on the market usually gets really tart and bitter when steep them too long, which no one likes. That's why Bai Mudan has such a bad rep in the market. Trying to find a white tea that doesn't become bitter is an almost impossible task. As a consequence, Bai Mudan is always treated as a low-quality tea. But that's not the case with our new Bai Mudan.

Qing Xiang means "refreshing aroma." That's what makes this white tea uniquely delicious. This white tea may be the first white tea we have found that doesn't get bitter even after steeping it three times longer than normal. In fact, I might even recommend you intentionally oversteep this tea once just to understand what I mean. It doesn't get bitter at all. On the contrary––it actually gets sweeter! The flavor is very smooth and super refreshing with its hint of a citrus note. The delicate mouthfeel lingers in your mouth with a subtle honey aftertaste, and the energy is very calm and yet awakening at the same time. You can drink this tea all day long and through all seasons without getting bored with the flavor. This Qing Xiang white tea is truly one of the best teas we have in our collection.  

Use high-temperature water (205º-212º Fahrenheit) to bring the flavor out of this white tea.  Don't worry, it won't get bitter like other Bai Mudan. This white tea is very easy to make. There is almost no wrong way of making this tea. When using gongfu style brewing, you can easily re-steep this tea for at least 10 times.

Love this tea

This is not the first time I have ordered this tea because I love it so much! In the afternoon, I always take a tea break and this is the perfect tea to just sit and unwind with. The flavor is subtle and delicious.

Best white tea I've had

I'm not the biggest fan of white tea. It has a lot of health benefits that women enjoy but taste wise...eeh. Bai mudan is the best out of all options. The flavor profile is complex and evolving. I used a raw wood fired pot with 180° water and the difference between brews was outstanding. I like it and will be drinking more of it.
