Tea Education

White teas are lightly oxidized and manufactured using a unique withering process. These teas are not fired or rolled like other teas and are the least processed of all teas, being naturally low in caffeine and high in antioxidants. They are usually less bitter than most teas and more forgiving of steeping time and water temperature. White Peony (Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan) is the middle grade, with Shou Mei being the lower grade and Yin Zhen (Silver Needle) being the top grade. All varieties come from the same tea plant and bush and differ in the type of leaf/sprout selected, and manufacturing process. White Peony is variegated in color, ranging from brown to yellow and white and covered with a characteristic silvery white down produced in the manufacture. The cup is slightly woodsy, light and a great accompaniment to food.
