Organic Yunnan White Peony

Uplifting, Sweet, Rounded Dahei Garden, Yunnan, China

An uplifting and fruity white tea with a light rose freshness. Its combination of large downy silvery buds and yellow-green leaves add depth to the tea, giving it a smooth texture and a refreshing floral character.

Organic Yunnan White Peony

白牡丹白茶

Produced by Yang Encan in a biodiverse garden in Yunnan's densely forested and remote mountains, this Organic White Peony is perfect for those who like a relaxing infusion like Jasmine Silver Needle or even lighter green teas like Jade Sword ™, but are looking to explore something with a little more complexity of flavour. We would also recommend this tea to more seasoned white tea drinkers who may prize the origin of their leaves, but are open to being rewarded with new tastes from a different terroir.
