White Peony Tea (Bai Mu Dan) Now Produced in Malawi - RateTea Reports

White peony tea, also known as Bai Mu Dan, is historically only produced in China. However, recent innovation has led to this type of tea also being produced in Malawi. RateTea reports on this unusual development.

 
PRLog - Jul. 27, 2012 - PHILADELPHIA -- White peony tea, also known as Bai Mu Dan or Pai Mu Tan, is a type of white tea originating in China's Fujian province.  As somewhat of a middle grade of white tea, white peony tends to be more expensive than shou mei (longevity eyebrows) but less expensive than bai hao yinzhen (silver needle).

Historically, white peony, along with all of these types of white tea, were historically produced only in China, and mostly only in Fujian province.

Recently, owing to growth of the specialty tea industry, and increased demand for Chinese styles of tea in Western countries, teas in the style of traditional Chinese teas have begun to be produced in a variety of other countries, not only in Southeast Asia but also in South Asia and Africa as well.

Malawi as tea producing region:

Malawi is not among the best-known regions of tea for specialty tea production.  Although it is one of the world's larger producers of tea, it still lags far behind the top 10 in volume of production, and it is even less well-known as a producer of high-quality orthodox tea and artisan teas.  However, artisan white tea production in Malawi has increased greatly, and teas in the style of traditional Chinese white teas are now being produced in Malawi and sold in the West by at least four different companies.

These teas include traditional white peony tea, with a leaf style that visually resembles teas produced in Fujian province of China.
