Weight: 50 grams (1.76 oz) Type: Loose leaf white tea Production area: Fuding, Fujian Province, China
White Peony is made from a combination of a bud and one or two leaves. The budset looks like a budding flower, which is how White Peony got its name. White tea is the least processed tea, involving only long withering, agglomerating, and drying. As such, it is believed that white tea of all teas, possesses the highest amount of the natural compounds in its leaves.
This tea is made from wild tea bushes from White Horse Heights Wild Tea Garden in Fuding, home of white tea. Perfect budsets were picked meticulously between mid to late March.This tea garden consists of 600 mu (about 100 acres). As the bushes are not pruned are not planted densely, the annual yield totals only around 300 Jin (500g/jin). This limited production White Peony is USDA organic certified and its quality is the pinnacle of white tea.
Taste characteristics: The tippy buds covered with fine slivery hair produce a pale yellow hued liquor with almond, honey, and stone fruit flavors and a sustained sweet aftertaste. The tea broth is round, viscous, and luscious. Although there is a briskness to it, it settles you and makes you feel safe and nurtured. White tea is being appreciated for its subtlety and delicacy. If you are looking for a tea to contemplate, to meditate, or to ponder, this would be a perfect choice.
BREWING INSTRUCTIONS: Use 5g of leaves per 6 oz of water. Using 195 degrees F water temperature, steep for 30 seconds for three infusions. Then increase the temperature of the water and lengthen the steep time for subsequent infusions.
I am now forever spoiled for tea!02/19/2020 ByKimberly Roberts I discovered Bana Tea through reading The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane, a fascinating fictionalized account of the ancient art of tea-cultivation by Lisa See. I have always been a tea lover, but since discovering Bana's exquisite high grade teas, I am forever spoiled. Never another tea bag! And even what I used to consider good loose tea has been banished to the back of my cupboard, probably never to be infused. I am a convert! Our responseThank you so very much for your kind comments. Drinking good tea offers us so much enjoyment and pleasure.
