Peony White Tea, also known as Pai Mu Tan, is one of the most popular types of white tea in the world. There are, however, many varieties of peony white tea grown in different areas. WellTea’s variety comes from the tea plantations in Taimu mountains in Fuding, which is in the province of Fujian, China.
The high altitude and cool breezes of this region offer the perfect conditions for growing peony white tea, making ours one of the finest available.
After it’s harvested, the tea leaves are treated the traditional way. First they are withered in the sun in a natural oxidation process that releases the flavour locked inside the leaves. After that they are sun dried before the leaves are stone-mould pressed into tea cakes weighing 350g. This makes them both convenient to transport and to brew without the need of teabags.
Our Peony White Tea Cakes require a mere 15 seconds to brew for the first time, allowing you to quickly enjoy the elegantly lush flavours, mellowing effect and sweet aftertaste of this WellTea. It can then be brewed a further two more times. However, if you have a lot of patience, Peony White Tea Cakes can also be stored for years in dry, cool conditions, which will enhance both its taste and value.
