To be perfect, white peony tea must be made from buds plucked with only two surrounding leaves. They must be the right colour and covered in a velvety white down. They must wither naturally. It can’t be too hot or too cold. Let’s face it, it’s a picky tea for the picky palate!
White peony buds simmering in a brew redolent of honey and orchards in the summer – what’s not to like? It’s a creamy and refined tea with a deep and mysterious character. The flavour is fruity and sugary, and the fragrance is delicate and lush.
It’s a noble drink ideal for a lavish affair. But it can just as easily be the brew that sets the mood for a little heart-to-heart with your nearest and dearest. Pair every sip of this pale floral infusion with your favourite biscuits and jam, and feel those happy vibes kick in.
Less processed than other teas, white tea only has around 10 mg of naturally-occurring caffeine per cup.
Premium grade camelia sinensis shoots and young leaves.
