About White Peony Tea

Green Tea Leaves and Cup of Light Yellow Tea
Spring White (White Peony)
from Numi Organic Tea
White peony, also called pai mu tan or bai mu dan(白牡丹), is a Chinese style of white tea which originated in Fujian province in the early 20th century. Among white teas, it tends to be darker in color and bolder in flavor than bai hao yinzhen, but lighter than shou mei, reflecting an intermediate level of oxidation between these other teas. White peony tea is one of the most popular and widespread types of white tea.

Light and Dark Green Tea Leaves
White Peony
from Rishi Tea
The name "peony" can be somewhat misleading; this tea is made only from the Camellia sinensis plant and does not contain any peony or other flowers. The tea is named due to the silvery appearance of the unopened leaf buds, which unfurl slightly in a blossom-like manner when brewed, and the name refers to the tree peony, Paeonia suffruticosa. This tea also tends to have a floral aroma.

White peony tea comes in different grades of fairly widely ranging price; the lower-grade tea contains more leaves and fewer buds.
