This white peony is different from many others in that it has a very deep, earthy flavor. You will immediately notice the roasty notes balanced against delicate florals. It’s like a stroll through the woods on a spring day.
Imperial White Peony (Pai Mu Tan)
This is the most full-bodied of our delicate white teas, and is produced from high-grade trees picked in a ratio of one white tea bud for every two unfurled leaves. Harvested in Spring from the Fujian area of China, these young buds are low in caffeine, with three times as many anti-oxidant polyphenols as either green or black teas.
Offering one of the fullest and most complex flavor palates of any white tea, it has a full, woodsy aroma with light floral top notes that are unmistakable and totally unique. Our Imperial White Peony Pai Mu Tan is organic, and is a signature Chinese tea that has been popular for millennia, and considered to be synonymous with wealth and honour in its home country.
