    History and background


    White peony tea has been around for eons, and it has been reported that the first variety emerged in the Northern Song dynasty in China during the years 960-1127. It was also during this time the first paper money and gunpowder were produced, so it would be no one's surprise to know that white tea is one of the more infamous types of drinks in the market.


    Usually harvested during spring time, white tea leaves are taken when they are still at a very young age. They are then carefully processed for drying and fermenting, and it is said that only the most experienced tea farmers can properly age the tea to produce the best quality. The Peony White tea is one of the most distinct leaves that give out the best flavours, and it may have acquired its name due to the fact that once it has been brewed, the elegant shape of one bud with green leaves highly resembles a newly-opened peony bud. The earlier the harvest time and the later the brewing point for these aged leaves, the better the taste they would produce.


    Taste


    Aged White Peony tea is thick and sweet, and is mostly suited for afternoon delights that can further help anyone relax and get through the rest of the day. This drink is very floral and refreshing, and add this to the subtle earthly aftertaste, this is definitely a treat.
