Aged White Tea - 2013 Imperial White Peony White Tea
Aged white tea (white peony) is a slightly fermented white tea and the second grade of white tea after Silver Needle white tea. The reason it is called peony is that after brewing, the elegant shape of one bud with green leaves resembles a newly-open peony bud.
This aged white tea was created during 1922 in Jishui, Jianyang city in Fujian; later, Fuding & Zhenghe started to produce White peony and become the main production areas.
Since the White Peony is made from one bud with two leaves, its fragrance contains more floral aroma, but not as delicate as the Silver Needle; its taste is fuller than Silver needle, but comparatively coarse.
All of our aged white tea is stored in the freezer, so it can maintain its super freshness when they are delivered to our clients.
Tea tree: Da Bai Hao tea bush from Fuding, Fujian Province
