Also known as Bai Mudan, White Peony is an organic, popular white tea.

White Tea
Known as “Bai Cha” in Chinese, white teas are made ony from the newly sprouted buds of the tea plant that provide a honey texture to the brew. The buds are heat braised in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal or no oxidation. There are several grades of White Peony made and are distinguished by the age of the plants, season and quality of leaves.

Varietal & Technique
Original White teas are native to areas of China’s Fujian province. In particular, one bud and leaf sets from the Da Bai tea plant varietals of Zhenghe and Fuding counties are recognized as traditional white Peony teas. Nowadays White Peony style of teas are also made in other areas of China but the flavors are quite unique due to the differences in varietals, climate and soil.

Fujian Province, known as Min, is situated along China’s southeastern coast. Fujian’s mild, humid, subtropical and marine climate is especially conducive to tea cultivation. Fujian tea has a 1600 year history. The earliest written record of tea production in Fujian is kept on a stone tablet at the Lian Hua Feng (Lotus Peak)in Nan’an County.

Classic style White Peony is made in April, the young bud and one leaf are most flavorful at this time. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined.

cold brewed in the fridge overnight – this makes a very refreshing iced tea!


Cold brewed beats iced IMO.


IMO, sometimes iced tea gets too watered down, so I can see where this would be better for more gentle leaf.

White Peony has a much darker, greener flavor than other whites I’ve tried. I usually steep it 4-5 times, which is great mileage compared to Silver Needle or similar. Great evening tea, very forgiving, and works well in a pot, or Chinese style.

This is an absolute morning favourite of mine. I always gaiwan this tea.
It’s beautifully light and refreshing, nice lingering nutty and autumnal notes with a light caramel finish.
Wonderful tea, I normally get about 3-5 infusions with a 2-3 tablespoon serving.

Flavors: Almond, Autumn Leaf Pile, Caramel, Nutty

Excellent tea in a pot or gaiwan, develops nicely over time and has its own light, fruity sweetness.
