Tea of The Month: A Chinese tea with lightly sweet floral tones...

What is it?

White Peony

Also known as Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan, White Peony is a sweet, mild Chinese tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as one or two of the newest leaves that sprout.  White Peony  Tea has a refreshing yet mellow and almost earthy flavour with highlights of a lightly sweet and smooth floral tone. Although not a caffeine free tea, this tea is still very beneficial to us as it contains very high levels of antioxidants, great for cleansing our system.

the silver of the dawn is rising in my chest
allowing each new bud (unborn and sweet)-
that's picked before the sun moves west
before the pickers dare to stop and eat-
to purify my mind, my heart, my blood
so when I meet the day I’m at my best
