Peony White Tea Chinese Top Quality – 50gr
White Peony is picked from the "big white tea" plants in the Fujian province of China.

The green leaves unfold when infused in hot water to resemble a White Peony blossom producing a naturally fresh aroma, a light yellow or orange yellow tea and a a mild and mellow taste.
White teas are produced by slightly fermenting young "fluffy white hair" leaves in a two step process including "withering" to inactivate oxidation followed by drying to deliver a tea with a pale appearance.
Fresh tea leaves contain high levels of Catechins and the White tea process is especially good at preserving these antioxidants. There has therefore been a series of health claims and studies carried out on this topic including studies at Harvard Medical School.
Traditionally the Chinese have also claimed strong medicinal properties of the White teas including that they are "refreshing and good for the stomach" and that they can be used to dispel "the heat". They are also claimed to support "the five vital organs
The tea is packaged in re-sealable tins to retain maximum freshness and aroma.
