Award-winning white tea with rich honey notes

Prepared by individually picking the best two leaves and a bud from tea trees in Fujian Province, the birthplace of white tea, this White Peony has won the Gold medal at the International White Tea Competition in China. 

Skilled tea masters processed the tea traditionally--sun-drying on bamboo trays--to naturally develop rich honey notes that can be aged for years to come. 

Expect the white tea cake to radiate intense chocolate and honey aroma with a lasting sweet finish.

    Light and floral!

    This is a wonderfully delicate and floral tea. I love having it in the afternoon as a nice pick-me-up. Well worth the investment.

    Surprising thickness to the mouthfeel

    It's got some surprising thickness to the mouthfeel, and the flavor reminds me a lot of the smell of hay on a hot prairie summer day, and clover - LOTS of clover!

    (would give 4.5, but the system doesn't allow half ratings)

    Lovely Tea

    Unlike other white teas, this one is very mild. It is smooth without bitterness. Lovely tea to serve with friends.

    Tasted the High quality!

    Since I taken several tea workshops with Mansa I can start to distinguish the quality of tea leaves from the source. This tea was smooth & fragrant. I only get my tea leaves from Mansa now!
