This popular white tea is known as White Peony Tea in English, but is also known as Pai Mu Tan in China. It is the most famous white tea, from Fujian Province.
After plucking, the tea is sun dried or naturally dried indoors. The leaves have dappled shades of green and brown with silvery white leaf tips producing an elegantly spicy taste with an amber cup.
Pai mu Tan has a clear bright apricot colour, with a natural lightly floral fragrance. White Peony white tea has a flavour which is very refreshing. It has layers of mellow and earthy flavours with highlights of a lightly sweet delicate and smooth floral tone. Although there are no actual peonies in White Peony white tea, it does have a slightly floral finish and aroma that lends an interesting note to its more earthy flavours.
