BILLIE is a blend of White Peony and sweet, sweet Honeybush. Hand-made by farmer Wang Hong in Fuding, Fujian.
White tea from the Fujian province of China. White Peony, also known as Pai Mu Tan, is a sweet, mild tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaf is allowed to wither dry in the sun. The natural oxidation which takes place during this withering gives White Peony beautiful, plush flavors (not unlike an oolong, flavor-wise). The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms. The liquor is golden and bright. Clean, succulent floral-fruit flavor and rounded mouthfeel. If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, or even just tea in general, our Billie tea accented with slightly sweet Honeybush will serve a wonderful introduction.
Steep at 195 degrees for 3-5 minutes.
