Pai Mu Tan
January 27, 2012 5 Comments
Pai mu tan is the next tea I will review from the many samples we at the Garner Greenhouse received from the Metropolitan Tea Company Ltd. The package reads: A white tea offering jammy flavor with sweet notes and a delicious lingering finish. Good body with a satisfying cup. The Luxury ingredients are White tea.
And now my opinion, such as it is…
It’s almost like weak tea, in fact I believe white tea is supposed to be naturally lighter than green or black teas because it’s harvested before it fully matures. It’s just as smooth as the others were, with a little more of a tea-like flavor. It’s a lighter flavor, though. Personally I think sugar helps it. I know some think that sugar ruins tea and coffee, but I don’t most of the time. The tea soothes me. In fact, I’m starting to think the green would’ve helped to keep me awake more, but oh well!
