WHITE PEONY TEA

Delicate, Fragrant, Slightly Sweet Taste
An Ancient Chinese Tea Once Reserved for Royalty – Beneficial Everyday Tea

THE CHINESE WHITE PEONY TEA TRADITION

White tea is an ancient type of tea. It was once a rare and treasured tea reserved for Chinese royalty. Modern research indicates white tea is high in polyphenols, a group of powerful antioxidants. It is made from the same tea plant, Camellia sinensis, used to make green and black teas, but uses special white tea varieties, and is minimally processed. Triple Leaf Tea’s White Peony white tea (Bai Mu Dan) is from the Fujian province of China. White Peony tea is considered one of the premium grades of white tea. It is made from the top grayish green leaves and silvery leaf buds, covered in a fine, silvery-white down. This fuzzy white appearance gives white tea its name. Triple Leaf’s White Peony tea starts with high quality tea leaves and leaf buds, and then specially processes it to pack in tea bags. Our White Tea has a golden color, and a subtle, fragrant, slightly sweet and complex, nutty flavor, unique to white tea. Enjoy the experience, taste and benefits of drinking white tea with this excellent white tea. It is delicious hot or iced.
