Origin - Fujian, China

Also known as 'Bai Mudan', White Peony is an organic, popular white tea.

White Tea

Known as 'Bai Cha' in Chinese, white teas are made only from the newly sprouted 'buds' and young leaves of the tea plant. The leaf hair 'down' on these leaves provides a honey texture to the brew. The leaves are dried in direct sun with minimal or no oxidation. There are several grades of White Peony made and are distinguished by the age of the plants, season and quality of leaves.

Fujian

Fujian Province, known as 'Min', is situated along China's southeastern coast. Fujian's mild, humid, subtropical and marine climate is especially conducive to tea cultivation. Fujian tea has a 1,600 year history. The earliest written record of tea production in Fujian is kept on a stone tablet at the 'Lian Hua Feng' (Lotus Peak) in Nan'an County.

Varietal & Technique

Original White teas are native to areas of China's Fujian province. In particular, Zhenghe and Fuding countries are recognized as traditional white tea making areas.

Season

White Peony is made in early summer. The leaves during this time have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined.

Flavor Profile

Delicate, herbaceous, autumnal aroma with a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor. Very low in caffeine content.

The Tao of Tea

Like the Tao, the art of tea is universal. We began our work with tea in 1997 to be a connecting thread for tea culture. Practicing the art on a daily basis in our teahouses in Portland, Oregon, we are a group of tea enthusiasts from different backgrounds and cultures. We travel, learn, take delight and seek to offer pure leaf teas with great flavor, artistry and soul. Our reward comes through actions that help people's lives, sustain the art of tea and promise a healthy environment.

Suggested Use

Brew two teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces of pure spring water at 175F for four minutes. Provides at least two infusions.

Best white tea I've tried

Posted by Umbridge on Jul 11, 2012

I've heard wonderful things about white tea, but here most of our white teas aren't loose leaf so I haven't been very impressed. This is excellent. It has a subtle flavour, isn't heavy on the tannins, and a faint floral aroma. I don't know how else to describe it, except that it tastes elegant. It doesn't need milk or sugar, and is perfect as is!

Excellent White Tea to the Connoisseur

Posted by Reviewer1463803 on Nov 08, 2013

I am an avid tea drinker and quite a snob when it comes to the green tea varieties. This tea is subtle and delicate just like a white tea should be. It is also truly low on the caffeine content (which sometimes is not always the case with certain brands of white tea depending on how overly processed it is.) I highly recommend this tea and would buy it all the time if it weren't too expensive for my price range.

Looks Very Good

Posted by 5381377404839896383 on Oct 28, 2013

I bought this tea to make Kombucha, The leaves are full sized and look so freshly dried if there is such a thing. I'm still awaiting the finished brew. I did find a piece of plastic string in the packet though.... Not sure what that was...

beaty can with ugly grass inside

Posted by 5223778067493670035 on Nov 10, 2012

A really perfect can. But the tea inside has no smell and taste at all. Do not advise to my enemies.
