Chinese Peony White Tea

Regular price £5.49

A pure white China tea - also known as Bai Mudan. Entirely hand-crafted from tender spring buds and fresh new leaves.

Our Chinese White Peony is sourced from a farm high in the Fujian mountains near the village of Fuding in China. This is the "Champagne" of white tea regions. The farm has no electricity and everything is done by hand to exacting, traditional methods.

Unlike White Silver Tip Tea which comprises just the spring buds this tea also contains the first delicate leaves. The combination of tender spring buds and the freshest new leaves, plucked just as they open to the sun, creates a remarkable depth of flavour.

Quite unlike a black tea which has been oxidised to bring out the stronger, more tannic flavours white tea is just dried in the sunshine. It is the least processed of all teas. Undergoing such limited processing means White Peony a retains higher levels of antioxidants than other teas.
