This white tea was first produced in the Chinese Fuding and Zhenghe counties in the Fujian Province and it is the second finest white, only after Silver Needle Tea.
It is also known as Bai Mu Dan or Pai Mu Tan, which basically means "white peony" in Chinese.
This tea is made from a single bud and two leaves, which gently unfold in your tea pot, resembling the petals of a peony blossom, hence its name.
Like other teas, this tea also comes from the tea plant camellia sinensis. It comes from two specific tea bushes called Da Bai (Large White) and Narcissus tea bush.
