Brief Introduction to
Bai Mu Dan (White Peony Tea)

White Peony, known locally as “Bai Mu Dan” or “Pai Mu Tan”, is one of the top 10 Chinese famous teas. Fuding and Zhenghe Counties are the hometown of White Peony Tea. Peonies are flowers of the wealthy in China — maybe that’s why the name is borrowed to label the tea. The tea leaves, with white downy hair, look like white peony flowers. The tea has two leaves, with a bud in the middle. They are tender, bulging like waves, and white downy hairs are covered all over the back. After being infused, the green leaves set off the tender buds, which looks like the blooming of the peony, graceful and elegant. The liquor is bright, clean and takes on apricot-yellow color, and the taste is mellow and fresh.

Bai Mudan tea is also a delicious white tea that consists of buds and leaves picked from great white tea plant in the early spring, sometimes blended with buds and leaves plucked from daffodil plant. The silvery bud is enfolded by green leaves, and it looks like a flower. When steeped, the green leaves unfold resembling petals of a peony blossom. That’s just as a inchoately blooming white peony.

The latest research reveals that white tea has 10 times more antioxidants than vitamin E and may be a more effective cancer fighter than even green tea. White Peony tea health benefits are similar to those of other white teas. White tea contains more polyphenols than green or black tea, which gives it more antioxidant power. The benefits of white tea haven’t been as well studied as those of green tea, but, according to some research, white tea has more anti-bacterial and anti-viral benefits than other tea types.

White tea is also a better source of theanine than black or green tea. Theanine is an amino acid that has a calming effect on the brain – by inhibiting a neurotransmitter called GABA. Lately, theanine supplements have become a popular remedy for treatment of anxiety and panic attacks. Drinking white peony tea helps with relaxation, despite the caffeine it contains. White tea usually contains less total caffeine than green or black tea, which is an advantage for people who are caffeine-sensitive
