KEDOÇAY Bai Mu Dan

Country of Origin: China
Leaf Appearance: varied mix of silvery buds and darker leaves
Ingredients: white tea
Steep time: 3 minutes
Water Temperature: 185 degrees
Preparation Method: glass teapot
Liquor: pale gold

I receive samples of tea from all over the world (much to the bewilderment of my local post office) but I believe that this was the first time I’ve received anything from Turkey. I was really excited to try some teas from this company, especially after reading Jen’s review of some of their teas on An International Tea Moment. There was a large amount of silvery buds in the dry leaves and while steeping I saw able to see the tiny hairs float off in the water. They were really beautiful to watch so definitely recommend using a glass teapot or gaiwan. The taste was delicately sweet with floral notes and a hint of honey. The aftertaste had somewhat of a hay-like affect. I know that may sound like an unpleasant thing but it’s actually quite nice. The mouth-feel was fairly thick with no bitterness. Bai Mu Dan is one of my favorite white teas because it is mellow yet fuller bodied than something like a silver needle. This was a very high quality tea and +KEDOÇAY has certainly made a great first impression.
