This tea originated in the Fujian province of China where it is traditionally known as Pai Mu Tan but perhaps more commonly referred to by its literal translation as White Peony. The making of this classic White Tea dates back to ancient Chinese traditions where the tea buds are collected from a special variety of bush called Narcissus, dried in the sun and withered prior to opening. The especially fine and fresh aromatic nature of Pai Mu Tan along with its soft, mild and flowery flavour makes it an ideal starter tea.
