About This Product

White Peony teas originated in China’s Fujian Province. The new bud and one or two young leaves are plucked from the Da Bai cultivar to produce this fragrant, sweet and mellow tea. There are several grades of White Peony, which are distinguished by the age of the plants, location, season, and quality of leaves.

Fujian Province, known as Min, is situated along China’s southeastern coast. Fujian’s mild, humid, subtropical and marine climate is especially conducive to tea cultivation. Fujian tea has a 1600 year history. The earliest written record of tea production in Fujian is kept on a stone tablet at the Lian Hua Feng (Lotus Peak) in Nan’an County.

Classic style White Peony is made in April, when the young bud and leaf set is at its most flavorful. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined.

Ingredients: 100% Organic White Tea Leaves.
Certified Organic by: Quality Assurance International (QAI)
