3 Brewing Methods for This Tea:

Full Description

Aged for 5 years now, White Peony is the second grade of white tea and it is a high quality delicacy itself. Unlike aged Shou Mei with big twigs and big leaves, White Peony has more buds and small young leaves, hence its aroma is more herbal and floral-like compare to Shou Mei. This aged white tea can also be steeped through decoction with aged Shou Mei (see brewing instruction below) and bring an astonishing taste note unlike any other aged tea. It also holds a high collecting value since its aroma and taste will evolve with time. 

A popular local saying in Fu Jian is ‘one-year-old white tea is only tea, three-year-old is medicinal herb and seven-year-old is treasure’. Similar to Pu Er, the aromatic compounds of white tea change with time and polyphenols (known for antioxidant properties) increase with time giving this tea a high collecting value because even more changes occur as time goes by enhancing the aroma and nutritional value.

Brewing Instruction Gaiwan & Teapot

Gai Wan or ceramic pot
Add 5gram/1-2tbsp
90 C / 195 F

Ceramic Teapot:

  • Add 8oz water and infuse for 3 min.
  • Repeat for another 3+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 1 minute with each additional infusion 

Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):

  • Rinse leaves and discard the first infusion
  • Add water and infuse for 10 seconds
  • Repeat for another 6+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 10 seconds with each additional infusion 

We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
