Description

Richer and fuller than most white teas, if you’re looking to explore the elegant world of Chinese tea then White Peony Tea is the perfect introduction. After brewing a cup, the delightful flavors and aroma of this luxurious tea leaf from one of the most exclusive plantations of China.

Among experienced Chinese tea drinkers, the leave made to make White Peony Tea are regarded as a gift from nature. As such, White Peony Tea goes through very little processing before it reaches your cup or teapot.

The leaves are simply picked while its silvery buds are still closed in early springtime , lush countryside in the Fujian Province close to China’s Fuding City. Unlike other leaves which are steamed or baked, there is no rolling or heating applied to White Peony tea leaves. Instead they are gently withered to allow them to be brewed to make tasting cup of tea. With every sip you will discover a tea filled with hints of soft fruits and melon tones.

White Peony Tea is indeed a gift from nature.  The silvery leaves of White Peony Tea provide the tea with a sparkling colour, aroma and taste that remains intact since they were first picked in spring.

BREWING INSTRUCTION

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on so that the tea retains all its aromas.
