Aged White Peony Reserve

RESERVE SERIES WHITE TEA

4 reviews

Aged expertly since 2016, this White Peony exquisitely illustrates how white teas mature over time. This rare find is crafted by teamaker Teng Fei Cai in the hills of Fuding, Fujian from the Fujian Da Bai cultivar. As it's aged, it has developed notes of beignet, bee pollen, and petrichor. A true testament that everything gets better with age.

Very delicate

Aged white peony has an extremely delicate flavor. Best to brew with the finest tasting water as water will be the predominant note with this tea. Not my favorite tea.

It’s ok

Its ok, I don’t dislike it but I also don’t crave it. It kind of tastes like black tea but lighter and a bit metallic. This tea is super relaxing and makes me sleepy every time I drink it so I recommend drinking it in the evening.

Ingredients

Full leaf white tea from from Fujian, China.

Blend Numerology

Reserve No. 304: The fourth tea in our 3rd Reserve Series.

Preparation

For Western brewing, this tea can be brewed for single infusions using 2 grams of tea (or a big pinch, the leaves are quite large) per 8 ounces of 195 degree water and steeped for five minutes.

For gaiwan brewing, place 6 grams of tea leaves into 150 ml (5 ounce) gaiwan. Bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process at least 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion. Learn more about gaiwan service here
