An exquisite version of the White Peony variety, this is a delicate tea made from unopened leaf buds and the newest two leaves to open on the tea bush. For White Symphony, many more buds are included than is typical for classic White Peony. The liquor is very light, similar to Silver Needles. But the flavor is much more complex: faintly floral, warm and sugary like honeydew or white nectarine. Soft mouthfeel and clean, uplifting finish. If you've been enjoying White Peony, we invite you to savor this more refined version.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

For more than sixteen centuries, Fujian tea producers have sown, harvested, and processed nearly one-fifth of China’s total production of tea. The province’s legendary tea pioneers first created the process for white teas and artisans have contributed to the esteemed reputation by ignoring typical firing of full leaves and, instead, allowing the leaves to only be withered and sun dried. The other, more distinct difference, is that white tea production uses only the hand-plucked, unopened leaf buds and the two youngest, most tender leaves. The dance of leaf, bud, and water is best appreciated in a glass pot or cup.

What am I doing wrong? I have a temperature controlled kettle, so brewing water for white tea is at a different control versus green or black. This is the second time my white tea has an ash taste at the back of my throat. Help!
