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.
