Description

Pai Mu Tan white tea: White Peony

Pai Mu Tan white tea, also known as White Peony, is produced in the Zheng Huo county of Fujian Province, China. It consists of the bud and two leaves of the tea bush. The white hairs on the bud gives the tea the appearance of China’s White Peony, one of its most beautiful flowers – hence the name. Without any rolling the leaf and bud remains intact in production, in fact this tea leaf can be appreciated in its natural state, for it remains just as it was when plucked from the bush – smooth and flowery. The flavour is sweet and mellow with a refreshing, attractive floral fragrance. The liquor is light and bright. Use one teaspoon per cup with freshly boiled water that has cooled to around 80 C. and infuse for five to eight minutes.

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Pai Mu Tan white tea has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.
