This tea has been aged with proper room temperature since 2019. A good quality White Peony tastes better when the tea has been aged for at least a year. The flavor, body, and aftertaste come out more distinctly than when it is freshly picked.

This tea is made of two types of young tea leaves and unopened tea buds. A long time ago, White Peony tea, or "Bai Mu Dan," was made for lower-class consumers who couldn't afford the top-quality Silver Needle white tea.

Many young white teas are considered milder in flavor. White peony matches better in the west where they prefer a much stronger flavor, like black tea. White peony has a balance of natural sweet dew flavors from the unopened buds mingled with the fresh, woody aroma of the young leaves.

This tea can be brewed using the gongfu style up to 15 times with a medium temperature of 190° Fahrenheit, or you can brew this tea at a higher temperature of 205° Fahrenheit for a more robust and complex flavor.
