The Chinese White Peony Tea Tradition
White tea is an ancient type of tea. It was once a rare and treasured tea reserved for Chinese royalty. Modern research indicates white tea is high in polyphenols, a group of powerful antioxidants. It is made from the same tea plant, Camellia sinensis, used to make green and black teas but uses special white tea varieties and is minimally processed. Triple Leaf Tea's White Peony white tea (Bai Mu Dan) is from the Fujian province of China. White Peony tea is considered one of the premium grades of white tea. It is made from the top grayish green leaves and silvery leaf buds, covered in a fine, silvery-white down. This fuzzy white appearance gives white tea its name. Triple Leaf's White Peony tea starts with high quality tea leaves and leaf buds and then specially processes it to pack in tea bags. Our White Tea has a golden color and a subtle, fragrant, slightly sweet and complex, nutty flavor, unique to white tea. Enjoy the experience, taste the benefits of drinking white tea with this excellent white tea. It is delicious hot or iced.
Triple Leaf Tea's Ancient Chinese Herbs & Teas
Traditional Chinese herbology began in approximately 2500 B.C. Recently, here in the West, people have discovered the value of this ancient system. Tea drinkers are able to enjoy a wider variety of Chinese herbs and teas that were rarely used in the West until now. The Chinese system of herbology has been recorded in ancient texts, which are studied and employed even today. This time tested knowledge has been passed on from generation to generation over the centuries.
