White Peony, also known by the traditional name Bai Mu Dan, is a popular style of white tea made of young tea leaves and silvery unopened leaf buds. Our White Peony comes from Zhenghe town in Fujian Province, the original birthplace of white tea centuries ago. Distinguished by being plucked in "budsets" of one or two leaves and a bud, this tea has a sophisticated mouthfeel with a slightly stronger body than Silver Needles. A gentle and slow air-dry withering process results in a brilliant amber infusion with a honey-like viscosity and mild flavor that pairs well with food. Pure white tea with mellow-sweet notes of fresh hay and accents of honey and nectar.
I LOVE this tea!!! This company has very high quality teas and this one does not disappoint. The description flavor notes were of fresh hay, honey and nectar. This is a very spot on description of this and it is also very richly flavored for such a delicate tea. Be careful not to over steep as this can get just the slightest bit bitter. Definitely a keeper!!!
