2010 Spring Organic Imperial White Peony White Tea
White peony is a slightly fermented white tea and the second grade of white tea after Silver Needle white tea. The reason it is called peony is that after brewing, the elegant shape of one bud with green leaves resembles a newly-open peony bud.
White Peony was created during 1922 in Jishui, Jianyang city in Fujian; later, Fuding & Zhenghe started to produce White peony and become the main production areas.
Since the White Peony is made from one bud with two leaves, its fragrance contains more floral aroma, but not as delicate as the Silver Needle; its taste is fuller than Silver needle, but comparatively coarse.
