Also known as White Peony. This is a mildly sweet Chinese tea made from unopened tea buds along with the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaves are withered dry in the sun, providing a unique texture.
Each cup is loaded with the highest amount of young nutrients and catechins (aka “antioxidants”). A very mild peony aroma and a floral aroma are noticed when brewing the tea. The tea is best brewed with good mineral water and at 70 °C to 80 °C (158 °F to 176 °F). The brew is a very pale green or golden color. The flavor is fruity; stronger than Silver Needle, yet not as strong as Shou Mei. The finest quality should have a shimmering clear infusion with a delicate lingering fragrance and a fresh, mellow, sweet taste devoid of astringency, and grassy flavors.

“Green tea is a widely consumed beverage and its origins date back thousands of years in China. The legendary Chinese emperor, Shen Nung, discovered the detoxifying and health-maintaining properties of green tea around 2700 B.C. In recent years, green tea is being widely studied for its beneficial effect in treatment and prevention of human diseases. It is considered to be anti-inflammative, anti-oxidative, anti-mutagenic, and anti-carcinogenic and can prevent cardiac disorders.”
