Also known as Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan, White Peony is a sweet, mild Chinese tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaf is allowed to wither dry in the sun. The natural oxidation that takes place during this withering gives White Peony beautiful, plush flavors. The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms. The liquor is golden and bright. Clean, succulent floral-fruit flavor, melon sweetness, a touch of gentle savoriness and rounded mouthfeel. If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, or even just tea in general, our White Peony tea will serve a wonderful introduction. Steep at 180°F for 3-5 minutes

      Very nice, floral and sweet, almost like a white tea version of a jasmine tea.

    • A. Wood


      Love this tea!!! Pure tea whit the touch of flower. Very enjoyable

    • Ash Mao


      This is a perfect standard for good white tea. It has a lovely subtle flavor, and in spite of the softness of the flavor, it can be brewed several times over. Just make sure you brew it as Adagio recommends, with water about 180 degrees Fahrenheit, not boiling water.

      Love this tea. Low caffeine content. It has a flora hint of peony and it's perfect

    • Mikayla Jenkins


      very subtle, not quite what I'm usually looking for in a tea, but it has its moments.

    • Amanda


      This is a fantastic starter tea to get into white teas. It has a subtle and delicate flavor that is lightly sweet and floral with a hint of honeydew melon. It's a great one to try out different brewing techniques to find out what you like, as different flavors become more pronounced depending on your water temperature and steeping time. A favorite for sure.

      A wonderful introduction to white tea. It's a light tea with a beautiful golden color. A brush of floral gives it a wholesome, holistic taste. Add a little sugar to sweeten it, or sip it hot and undoctored in all its earthiness.

    • Max Sugerman


      This is a really light white tea. It has a slight vegetal and floral smell but its incredibly delicate

    • Casey Wolfe


      Light, fresh flavor and smells lovely. It's perfect with a little bit of sugar. Sugar in the Raw compliments the flavor profile, as does honey. This is also a great tea to add rosehips to for an immune boosting blend.
