Description

White Peony, also known by the traditional name Bai Mu Dan, is a popular style of white tea made of young tea leaves and silvery unopened leaf buds. Our White Peony comes from Zhenghe town in Fujian Province, the original birthplace of white tea centuries ago. Distinguished by being plucked in "budsets" of one or two leaves and a bud, this tea has a sophisticated mouthfeel with a slightly stronger body than Silver Needle. A gentle and slow air-dry withering process results in a brilliant amber infusion with a honey-like viscosity and mild flavor that pairs well with food.


Tasting Notes

Pure white tea with mellow-sweet notes of fresh hay and accents of honey and nectar

Everyday Brewing

Water to Leaf Ratio
1 tbsp (4g) per 8 oz of water
Water Temperature
185°F
Steep Time
4 minutes

Traditional Brewing

Water Temperature: 185°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 2 tablespoons per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4 minutes (1st infusion), 5 minutes (2nd infusion)

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Guywan.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Ingredients

Organic white tea.

Origin

Fujian

Definitely smells and tastes like hay. Oddly enough, I really began to enjoy this tea after about 3 cups.
