White Peony (Bai Mu Dan), Fujian Province
China white tea
Its smooth, clean flavour reminds some connoisseurs of grilled chestnuts – but all agree that the long, slightly curled leaves resemble peony petals when steeped. Picked a little later in Spring from the same plants as Fujian Province’s legendary Silver Needles, similarly rare and sought-after White Peony produces a pale yellow tea of exquisite flavour and delicate aroma.
Ingredients: Camellia Sinensis (tea)
