Peony White Tea

(20 customer reviews)

Clear slightly pale cup with a fresh aroma and a smooth velvety flavour. Delicate jammy notes reminiscent of Keemun or a mild Bordeaux.

Ingredients: Peony White Tea





This is the highest grade of white tea available before one enters the stratosphere in pricing for white teas such as Peony White Needle Tea. Pai mu Tan leaves are plucked from a special varietal tea bush called Narcissus or chaicha bushes. Only special ‘two leaves and a bud’ are selected. The leaves are naturally withered and dried in the sun. If mechanical drying is required it is a baking process at tempratures less than 40 degree c. If leaves must show a very light green almost gray white colour and be covered with velvet peach fuzz down. White teas that are withered in conditions that are too hot will become reddish and in conditions that too cold they will become blackish. You will see in Pai Mu Tan the perfect balance between solar and indoor withering resulting in a perfect white tea.




1. Put 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of Peony White Tea for each 7-9 oz/200-260ml of water in the teapot.

2. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep 3-7 min.

3. Add Milk & Sugar to taste.


1. 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of Peony White Tea into a teapot.

2. Pour 315ml boiling water on tea. Steep 5 min.

3. Quarter fill serving pitcher with cold water Pour into pitcher straining the tea.

4. Add ice, top-up with cold water, garnish & sweeten to taste.



Pai Mu Tan has a calming and detoxifying effect on the skin. White tea is especially potent in that it has three times as many antioxidant polyphenols as green or black tea and has been shown to be 100% more effective in mopping up free radicals that cause skin to sag. Some of the world’s top cosmetic companies are becoming interested in white tea for skin creams and the result is that high grade white tea is becoming even more rare. Researchers at the Linus Pauling institute in Oregon tested white teas on selected rats for the ability of white teas to inhibit natural mutations in bacteria and to protect the rats from colon cancer. White teas were found to be more effective than green tea in inhibiting the early stages of cancer but researchers were quick to point out that their study was on rats and the effects should not be extrapolated to humans. One tea expert has been quoted ‘unlike black or green tea, it isn’t rolled or steamed, this preserves its antioxidant properties’.

    After reading about the many health benefits from drinking white tea, I decided to give it a try. It’s been a few weeks that I’ve been drinking it and I enjoy the flavor and bolder taste. It’s taken me a little time to adjust to the caffeine because I usually drink decaf teas. The little kick from the caffeine gets me started each morning!

  13. Nico Weyers

    This is a light, healthy, easy to drink tea for all times of the day. White tea, I understand, has health benefits as well.

  14. Glynis Freeman

    I like it. I would describe the flavor as something between green and black tea, right in the middle. That’s why I love it

  15. Carol

    Love this tea. Doesn’t stain my teeth, low in tannins (I get rashes from tannins), enough caffeine to help me wake up in the morning.

  16. Calum

    I’m an Oolong Tea drinker and was not sure at the time about the white tea. To my amazement I enjoy the white tea more then my old fav Oolong.

  17. Bruce C.

    I prefer white tea to all other teas and Peony White is the best premium white tea I have experienced thus far. I have made Peony my primary daily tea.

  18. Gareth A.

    This tea is pleasant surprise. This tea has a much more pleasant flavor and aftertaste. This Peony tea is light and fruity, with a very light hint of earthiness. No astringency
    as far as I could tell.

  19. Charl1966

    Delicious…does not leave the dry taste in your mouth like other teas

  20. scott rowell

    I enjoy the mild flavor of the white tea. I won’t say I’m a tea expert. I like what I like and I like this. I’ve purchased it more than once.
