Type:

White tea

Overview:

Don’t let the name mislead you, White Peony is completely made from the Camellia Sinensis plant. It may look like withered flowers but that is because White teas undergo less stages of processing and are largely preserved in their original state.

Our White Peony is harvested from the Dabaicha (大白茶) cultivar grown in Fuding (福鼎)and consist of one 1 bud and 2 leaves.

Taste:

Refreshing with a more subtle but lingering licorice like sweetness

Liquor:

Clear golden with reddish hue

Personality:

White Peony is like the little sister of the Prom Queen (Silver Needles), you can hardly mention her without referencing her more illustrious sibling.

Removed from the shadows however, you will be pleasantly surprised at how well she stands on her own merit.
