White Peony Loose Tea
Out of stock
With minimal processing, this loose leaf white tea maintains its exquisite delicacy of taste and floral sweetness.
Known for its subtly sweet and refreshing taste, white tea is made from the youngest two leaves and a bud from each bush and experiences very little processing: the leaves are simply dried in the sun, or inside to control temperature and humidity.
Our signature loose leaf White Peony or “Bai Mu Tan” tea was first created in Fujian Province in 1922: the downy leaves are harvested at the very start of spring, and lightly dried to stop the process of oxidation. Unlike black or green teas, there's no twisting, rolling or even steaming – the leaves are barely touched.

Sublimely delicate, with the sweetness of a ripe cantaloupe melon
Something light so as not to overpower the tea
We’ve given our White Peony tea the number 3 – that’s the number of parts in the picking of the leaf, the youngest two leaves and a bud from each bush.

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.
