These lovely pearls are made from white peony leaves that are hand-shaped. Each pearl is of the larger variety, weighing on average 3.5 to 4 grams. Once steeped, the cup reveals classic white peony notes of melon and cucumber, a little mineral flintiness and just a hint of honey. Perfect for on-the-road brewing and multiple steepings.

White tea, or baicha in Chinese, thought to be the most subtle of all tea types, uses only the finest leaves from each tea bush. It is prepared with a minimal amount of processing by withering and naturally drying the fresh buds.

This tea says it has notes of honey and I'm wondering if there's honey in the ingredients or if it's just a flavor profile. Does anyone know? Thanks!
