DATE OF PICKING
Bai Mu Dan (white peony) is picked with a combination of early spring buds and tender leaves, full of bud down that adds texture and richness to the tea.

Pretty smooth and lightly/delicately flavoured – reminds me of the super airy and refreshing cucumber finger sandwiches you sometimes get at afternoon or high tea, with just a kiss/hint of lemon as well.
