WHITE PEONY / ORGANIC BAI MU DAN

White tea comes from the young, unopened bud of the tea plant, and is handled gently to preserve the silvery white hairs on the leaves. It’s the lightest tea you can imagine, with a slight up-front astringency and a hint of apricot.

Two Leaves and a Bud is an independent tea company based in the small mountain town of Basalt, Colorado (population 3,000), and is known internationally for producing high quality organic and fairly traded tea in sachets, iced tea, loose leaf, and now teabags from their Paisley Label Tea collection.

Two Leaves and a Bud is a pioneer of the pyramid-shaped sachet in North America. These tea sachets have made drinking whole leaf tea convenient for all. The special shape and size of the sachets allows the tea leaves room to infuse completely, providing fuller flavour.

Truly great tea is hard to come by. It requires rich flavor with complexity and nuance. It balances sweetness and astringency. It’s a labor of love: Every season’s new tea brings variance in cup color, flavor, depth, intensity, all of which need to be cupped and assessed. Most of all, it requires passion.

Named for the top two leaves and bud of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) plucked by hand to make the world's best tea, Two Leaves and a Bud has built a grassroots following by "taking tea personally" — connecting tea lovers to the tea they love and introducing new tea drinkers to great tea.
