Yue Guang Bai
White teas are the most delicate of all teas. They are steamed & dried only, so the leave appearance is essentially unaltered. Bai Mu Dan is made from the bud and leave. 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 just as a inchoately blooming white peony, hence the tea is named "white peony tea". There is a fine white down that covers the long slender bud. When infused the flavour is slightly smoky and slightly sweet and the cup colour is a pale yellow. This is an excellent Bai Mu Dan, which is great any time of the day or night. Medically white tea is refreshing and is good for the stomach. It can also be used to dispel the heat.
