White teas are made only from the newly sprouted buds and/or young leaves of the tea plant. The buds are heat braised in covered pans or dried in direct sun with minimal superficial oxidization. Classic style white peony is made in April, when the leaves are at their tastiest. The buds have distinct white hair that makes the brew texture smooth and refined. The flavor is delicate, herbaceous, with an autumnal aroma and a very smooth, sweet, nutty flavor.
