Also known as Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan, White Peony is a sweet, mild Chinese tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaf is allowed to wither dry in the sun. The natural oxidation that takes place during this withering gives White Peony beautiful, plush flavours. The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms. The liquor is golden and bright. Clean, succulent floral-fruit flavour, melon sweetness, a touch of gentle savouriness and rounded mouthfeel. If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, or even just tea in general, our White Peony tea will serve a wonderful introduction.

This tea contains a low level of caffeine | Steep at 80°C for 3-5 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavour in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavour of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Meet our white peony farmer, Wang Hong

To ensure the best quality and value, we import our teas directly from the countries in which they are grown, working closely with the farmers who tender them. Our Roots Campaign connects our customers with the rich stories and the farmers behind some of our most popular teas.

How long have you been growing tea and what got you started?
I began to work with tea when I was 20. Now I have 20 years of experience. It is a family business. I was influnced by my parents when I was a little girl.
Can you describe a typical day out in the field?
Normally I will get up at 6. After a simple breakfast I will go to the tea mountain. My main job is picking. After picking I will send the tea leaves to our village factory for production. Normally I will go back home around 9 to 10 in the evening. But my main working season is in Spring. Because we only make one season for white tea.
What is your favorite part of growing tea?
I love the picking in the beautiful green mountain. I love to sing a song while picking. I do enjoy the fresh spring morning.
