White Peony (Organic, Fair Trade)
White Peony (also known as Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan) is a lovely, classic white tea and one of the highest grades of white tea available before you jump up to much more expensive whites. Infusion is light with a fresh aroma and smooth, slightly sweet flavor. A calming, relaxing tea, very high in antioxidant polyphenols. In fact, white teas contain up to three times more polyphenols as green or black teas. Organic and Fair Trade. Use a heaping teaspoonful per 8 oz., fresh water caught just as small bubbles begin to form (about 180), and steep for 2-3 minutes.
