Gathered only in the earliest days of spring, the preparation of this tea is governed by strict requirements. This dedication to perfection is evident in the cup, which is sweet and delicate with a clean, airy fragrance. Full-leaf tea in portable, individually wrapped bags - superior taste and maximum convenience.

Modern-day white teas can be traced to the 18th Century Qing Dynasty, a time when they were harvested from ordinary tea bushes. White teas differed from green teas in that their processing did not incorporate any steaming or pan-firing. The teas were simply shaped, and allowed to wither. The resulting leaves were thin, small and did not have much silvery-white hair. It wasn't until 1885 that specific varietals of tea bushes were selected to make white teas. The large, silvery-white leaves of the Silver Needle came into being in 1891. And the production of White Peony began around 1922.
