White teas represent tea in perhaps its simplest, most noble form. Tender buds and sprouts are plucked in early spring, then simply withered and dried to preserve and celebrate their exquisite character and delicately sweet flavor. These elite teas are known traditionally as the "Scholar's Tea" for energizing poets, statesmen and intellectuals with a reflective, calm state of focus.
This traditional white tea style, also called Bai Mu Dan, originates in northern Fujian. Harvested every year from April through May. White Peony is plucked in "budsets" consisting of two tea leaves and a bud, giving this classic white tea its rich body and welcome, mellow-sweet notes of fresh hay.
