This 37.5g box of Whole Leaf Loose White Peony Tea is fresh, has soft fruity notes (hints of melon) and a subtle floral aroma. Full of health benefits, and with a surprising amount of caffeine, it makes for the perfect every day brew!
Known as Bai Mu Dan, White Peony Tea is produced in the Fujian Province of Eastern China. White Peony is made combining Silver Needle buds with larger leaves delivering a fuller flavour than Silver Needle white teas.
Fun fact: this beautiful tea gently unfolds to look like peony petals, hence the name!
What is white tea?
Famed for numerous health benefits, White tea has a deliciously delicate, sweet, refreshing taste. The least processed of all teas, the hand-picked leaves are barely touched and avoid the twisting, rolling and steaming process that other tea types undergo. White teas are often mistakenly referred to as unoxidised. However, due to the minimal processing, enzymes remain within the leaf and naturally experience oxidation. So white teas are slightly more oxidised than green teas, who knew?
Whilst we don’t condone favouritism, white teas are pretty exceptional. White peony is our ultimate hero - the antioxidants help skin stay youthful and can help protect against UV rays.
Life is too short to drink bad tea, here's how to make the perfect white tea
Step 1: Use one teaspoon of Loose Leaf Tea per cup (or use the Simplicitea Loose Leaf Tea Infuser to brew a perfect cup each time)
Step 2: Use freshly drawn boiled water that has been cooled to 70-80ºC. Using boiling water can damage the leaves.
Step 3: Avoid oversteeping, we recommend 90 seconds. Taste it and then decide if you’d like to steep a little longer. The tea leaves can be resteeped multiple times.
This tea is a versatile one and can be used to infuse cool and hot drinks with flavour, adding gentle floral notes to baking.

Guilt free sipping
We’re a nation of tea monsters consuming over 165 million cuppas every year and growing. To keep up with the worlds growing love affair with tea in a socially just and environmentally sustainably way, the Ethical Tea Partnership was formed. Working with individual tea estates, We Are Tea help producers & smallholder farmers raise their performance against international social & environmental standards to produce ethical tea, as well as address key issues holding back tea sustainability in the global tea producing regions through training and support.
We Are Tea are committed to helping the environment by removing pesky plastic from their packaging completely by the end of this year, along with having 100% biodegradable and compostable teabags and takeaway cups in all their stores.
Keep away from moisture (until it lands in your cup!) We recommend you store your tea in an opaque, airtight container. It might look pretty in glass, but the light damages the tea leaves and subsequent taste. Nooo!
Please store away from direct sunlight, in a cool, dry place. Consume within 2 years from purchase for optimum freshness.
