Our Review
Mutan White is made on the same hills that make Chinese Silver Needle, just outside of Fuan in northern Fujian Province. The tea is based upon the same Da Bei or Big White cultivar. After enough tips (or buds) are gathered to make Chinese Silver Needle, the plants are allowed to grow some more. Then when two immature leaves have grown, the whole set is harvested; two leaves and a bud (aka tip.) The sets are dried in large barns, where the slow process allows a bit of oxidation to occur. This gives Mutan White some fruity and vegetal flavors.
Dry Leaves A mix of silver-green long tips (or buds) and forest green leaves. This tea is made after the harvest of the Chinese Silver Needle (aka YinZhen). The growers allow some leaves to mature and then they harvest. Like with Silver Needle, little is done other to allow the tea to dry inside a barn. Although the leaves look green, this is a white tea because of the production method.
Liquor Mutan White has a yellow green liquor, and is the darkest of all white teas because the leaves are attached to the white tip.
Aroma This tea has a light vegetal aroma glazed with sugar, like the sweet, charred quality of roasted leeks.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body In the realm of white teas, this tea has the most body. This is because of the leaves, although it is still much lighter than most other teas.
Flavors The finest (and that is what we offer) fill your mouth with the light sweet vegetal flavors of steamed yellow squash or leeks.
Brewing Time 2 to 3 minutes
Brewing Temperature 175° F
