White Peony White Tea
2014 Pre-qingming (Bai Mudan)
White Peony is from the same bush of the silver needle. This one is only several days older than our silver needle when most buds turn into leaves which depends a lot on the weather. You could see the same white hair. They are mostly air dried and partially oxidized.
These are hand picked before March 29, 2014 from Taimu mountain area in Fuding China.
