Our Garden Direct collection features seasonal micro-lots of single-origin teas we source and import directly from artisan tea farmers. Available for a limited time, these handcrafted teas were selected through real time micro-lot tea cuppings during our 2017 origin travels.

Also known as Bai Mu Dan Wang, this is the highest grade of White Peony. Picked early in spring, White Peony King creates a delicate golden infusion with savory oceanic umami and smooth, honey-like sweetness. While many teas are best enjoyed fresh and soon after harvest, white teas are among a small set that have the capacity to develop complexity as they age, transforming to express more mature, rounded flavor profiles. Our 2017 White Peony King is reaching a brilliant stage in its aging trajectory right now. Its original herbaceous flavor has smoothed over, while vivid notes of peach blossom have become more concentrated.
