White Peony (Bai Mu Dan)
Our White Peony is harvested and processed from the first pluckings of spring. We buy this tea mindful of time, its leaves should be a certain size and offer a mix of light and darker greens and silver buds to create its nuanced and sweet taste. Traditionally processed by withering and air drying, the blend of leaf colors will yield a clear yellow cup color and multiple tastes of melon, grape and herbs. Be generous with the leaf, probably a heaping tablespoon and steep it in water temperature of 170–185 degrees for 2 -4 minutes.
