hairs that provide the tea connoisseur with a delicate lingering fragrance and fresh sweet mellow taste. The rules for picking Peony White tea are strictly enforced. Only leaves picked between March 15 and April 10 are used. Harvesting does not commence unless the leaves are dry and void of any morning dew.
