WHITE PEONY (BAI MUDAN)
A delicate White Tea grown in Fuding, China, White Peony offers a greater potency than Silver Needle. Only the bud and top two leaves of each tea tree are carefully handled to create this elusive tea. It is air dried and withered into green leaves with downy hair.
White Peony is known to offer high antioxidants with comparably low caffeine content because white teas are the least processed of all tea types. Though its taste profile is faint at first it becomes increasingly sweet in each subsequent infusion, revealing a surprisingly smooth grassy sweet note to the end.
