Bai, Bai, Baby! A profile on Bai Mudan tea

Many of you have asked about the type of White Tea used in Chai, Baby!’s White Tea & Lemon Myrtle. Well, we use tender Bai Mudan white tea, from the Fujian region of China. It’s picked as a tightly curled bud with 2-3 young leaves, and then steamed and dried. At that point, it looks like a little silvery bud surrounded by curled green leaves.

Bai Mudan tea produces a pale yellow infusion and a smooth, mild flavor. We’ve added lemon myrtle and lemongrass to our Bai Mudan blend for some lovely citrus notes and a truly unique taste. To prepare, pour very hot water (just about to boil) over the tea and steep for 2-3 minutes. Sip and be refreshed, baby!
