Also known as 'Bai Mudan', White Peony is a popular white tea of Fujian.
White teas are made only from the newly sprouted buds and young leaves of the tea plant. The leaf hair or 'down' on these leaves provides a honey texture to the brew. The leaves are dried in direct sun with minimal or no oxidation.
Fujian Province is situated along China's southeastern coast. Fujian's subtropical, marine climate is especially conducive to tea cultivation. The province has a 1,600 year history with tea. 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.
White Peony is made in early summer. This is an optimal time when leaves have their distinct white hair characteristic of smooth white teas.
Delicate, herbaceous, autumnal aroma with a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor.
Brew two teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces of pure spring water at 175ºF for four minutes. Provides at least two infusions.
