Origin: Jiangxi Province
Our organic White Peony tea (Bai Mudan,白牡丹) is a white tea, grown in the very northeastern corner of Jiangxi Province. Made from only one bud and the two adjacent young leaves, this tea is carefully processed to promote a bare minimum of oxidation. It is sun dried, heaped, and then gently baked until fully dried. Bai Mudan is always handled carefully in order to minimize leaf breakage so as to maintain optimal quality.
White Peony is our most delicately flavored tea, but its bright, fresh taste is distinctive while free from grassy or bitter overtones.
Like all tea we sell, our White Peony is whole leaf, organic and Fair Trade certified. It is of outstanding quality and purity, a tea to enjoy on a regular basis, and worth sharing with friends and family who may never have heard of white tea, much less encountered it in whole leaf form.
White Peony is available by 1.5 oz tin, and by half or whole pounds. Wondering if you'll like it? Try a taste! Tasting samples are available for all our teas and good for two cups.
See Brewing Guidelines for more information.
Beautiful loose tea. Taste is very smooth, slightly sweet with floral notes. Highly recommend!
Peonies are my favorite flowers so naturally I had to try this. This tea does not disappoint. It's so smooth and delicate in taste and pairs perfectly with a little honey. I prefer to steep this at 185 F instead of 180 for a little extra body. This is one of my favorites from LRCT so far :)
I haven't tried it yet!
White peony is one of the favorite teas of our family.
This is the second pound of this tea I have bought, and I love it! I usually drink it iced, especially in the hot Georgia summers. It is never bitter of grassy as they say in the description. Excellent flavor, a great mild tea that I can drink all day.
The staff recommended this tea to me and the wee tins were just not enough. Just order a monster bag of it and am making several pots a day. Just bought a traveling tea kettle so I can take White Peony with me...
