White Peony | 白牡丹
Tasting notes: Muscatel, honey, soy milk
Origin: Fuding, Fujian, China
Cultivar: 福鼎大白 Fuding Dabai
A delightfully fresh-tasting white tea with a honey-like viscosity and a muscatel grape flavour that mellows and deepens with age.
Why we love it:
- It's bright, light and refreshing with a smooth texture.
- It is minimally processed: the leaves are simply withered and dried, honouring its natural flavour.
- As the second picking grade of white tea, it is made of one bud and two leaves, giving it a more robust flavour, while retaining the delicate sweetness of the buds.
- It ages well - there is more room for the flavour to change as the leaves slowly oxidise over time.
Why is it called White Peony?
There are a few theories: some people say it was common for tea traders to name teas after flowers, and peonies symbolise wealth in China. Others say it’s because the one-bud-two-leaves picking standard looks like the shape of a flower. And still others say it’s named after its natural floral fragrance.
