This delicate white tea has a clean taste faintly reminiscent of fresh apples. Refreshing with a lovely, lingering flavor.
Peony White Needle Tea is the top grade available and very rare - hence its high cost. You will see the long white needles covered with furry down and a very uniform appearance - hallmarks of very rare white tea. These are the rules for picking Peony White Tea:
- Only picked between March 15 and April 10.
- Not picked on days that may be raining
- Not picked if the dew has not dried or if there is frost on the ground
- No purple buds allowed and the stems must not be too long or too short.
Leaves damaged by wind, handling, insects or partially open are rejected and put into a lower grade.
