Description: There is so much to love about white peony. But what makes this tea so lovable, you ask? Is it the fact that it's the underrated and less refined sibling of the white tea family? Sure, everyone loves an underdog. But ultimately it boils down to two simple questions. Who doesn't love a white tea with great flavor? Who doesn't love a good origin myth? White Peony has both in spades. While details of the legend vary, all versions credit the origin of this special tea to a celestial deity who bestowed it upon a human to cure an incurable illness. Putting aside the divine endorsement and lifesaving healing properties, our organic White Peony is full flavored but never bitter or astringent, making it a favorite among white tea enthusiasts. Unlike Silver Needle, which is composed of only the bud of the tea plant, White Peony is the bud and two leaves. The result is a richly flavored, strongly floral yet fresh tea, that is perfectly suited for everyday drinking and first time white tea drinkers. It's robust flavor holds up incredibly well with ice, making it the perfect choice for iced tea and cold brew.
