Pai Mu Tan Bärbucha Kombucha
Aktualisiert: Feb 10
Pai Mu Tan is a great tasting white tea & for that reason we have made a room for it in our Premium Line selection.
As with many Chinese names, this one being no exception, the name is spelt in many similar forms. Here in Germany it's Pai Mu Tan, in English speaking countries it's spelt as Bai Mudan.
The name means White Peony & as Teapedia (1*) describes it " is a type of white tea made from plucks each with one leaf shoot and two immediate young leaves"..." Bai Mudan is sometimes preferred by white tea drinkers for its fuller flavor and greater potency..."
The main production provinces for this tea are Fujian, Fuding and in Zhenghe - all located in China.

It is a wonderful white tea with delicate floral notes. Those come through even more, once this tea gets fermented. Below is the steeping process:
And the straining of the tea, after steeping.
As always, we use glass containers for each & every single batch. This method delivers the best flavor for us & we stand by it.
Here's our ready-for-fermentation single batch of Pai Mu Tan.
So, once the tea is fermented. We remove the Scoby & run the liquid through a strainer to get rid of the yeast & Scoby pieces. Then it goes into our retail bottles.
As with all of our Kombucha, the carbonation in Pai Mu Tan is all natural & this final product is left unfiltered to keep all the natural properties of fermentation, as well as those of the tea. When it's all bottled, our Pai Mu Tan goes through the second fermentation to encourage the formation of natural carbonation & the a bit of conditioning in the fridge.
And then it's finally, it is ready for retail!
