White Peony (also called Bai Mu Dan) is a white tea made from the Fuding Dai Bai cultivar, and originates from Fuding, in eastern Fujian. The tea is plucked from one leaf shoot and two immediate young leaves, followed by very few procedures – mainly just withered in the sun and baked dry without breaking the leaves, to preserve most of the antioxidants. The resulting brew presents a very mild peony aroma, a pale green to golden colour and delicate fruity, sweet and grassy flavors that linger long after each sip.

Note from Ms.Cattea: Under a good storage condition, the taste of aged White Peony will become more mature and smoother, which is more gentle to drink and has less exciting effect on the stomach. The market value of 5 years old white teas can be twice expensive as the fresh ones. 


Brewing instructions: Take 1 full teaspoon per cup ( 2 teaspoons for a stronger flavour); 90°C fresh boiled spring water; 1st brew - 30s | 2nd brew - 60s or more for stronger flavour.
