Imperial White Peony and Rose
$27.00 – $99.00 — available on subscription
Classic White Peony tea is made from downy buds that have two small leaves attached to their base (termed two leaves and a bud). The two leaves cradling the bud are said to resemble the shape of peony flower petals. Our Imperial White Peony with Rose is made from specially produced Fujian white tea generously blended with the finest dried rose petals.
Fujian, China: Fujian is a coastal province in southeastern China where the finest oolong, white, and jasmine teas are produced. According to the written record, teas have been produced there for well over 1,600 years. Growers currently produce five different categories of tea, most of which originated in the province.
The beauty of Imperial White Peony with Rose is best appreciated through traditional Gaiwan preparation. In a pre-warmed Gaiwan place 3-4 grams of tea and cover with 80C (176F) water and infuse for 1-3 minutes. Re-steep by gradually increasing infusion time and water temperature.
