  • White Peony


    White Peony, also known by the traditional name Bai Mu Dan, is a popluar style of white tea made of young tea leaves and a silvery unopened leaf buds.This White Peony comes from Zhenghe town in Fujian Provice, the original birthplace of white tea centuries ago. Distinguished by being plucked in "budsets" of one or two leaves and a bud, this tea has a sophisticated mouthfeel with a slightly stronger body than Silver Needle. A gentle and slow air-dry withering process results in a brilliant amber infusion with a honey-like viscosity and mild flavor that pairs well with food.   A Rishi-Tea Fine Tea
