Pai Mu Tan is, I believe, the best-known White tea available. It is certainly our most popular both with customers as well as staff and family. This High Grade is technically known as 6901 and is from the Second Flush. The two other numbered grades are 6902, called Café Grade and 6900 referred to as Special Grade. The 6900 would correspond to the Indian style classification as ‘Orange Pekoe 1st Flush’. All the grades are wonderful each showing its own nuances of flavour. White teas are drunk not only for their delightful flavour but also the large variety of health-giving properties they impart. White teas are sundried and withered with no steaming as is typical for green teas. This High Grade has great depth of flavour and is possibly my favourite although I do like all of them. Fuding is a city within Fujian, an area famous for its production of White Tea, and is a guarantee of high quality.
I brewed this tea at 80oC for three minutes and it produced a lovely bright refreshing cup. I will not go into the incredible health giving properties that this famous White Tea provides as you already know this or can easily Google it.
