Product Description

Our White Peony King White Tea is a slightly fermented white tea and the second grade of white tea after Silver Needle. The reason it is called peony is that after Steeping, the elegant shape of one bud with green leaves resembles a newly-open peony bud. 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.

More information

White Peony was created in 1922 in Jishui, Jianyang city in Fujian province. Later, Fuding & Zhenghe started to produce White peony and become the main production areas.
