Aged White Peony 2013

Net Wt. 100g
Carefully picked and hand made in the old traditions, this white peony tea has been shaped and pressed into discs like the tea farmers used to do back in the old days and aged for almost three years.
A delicate floral aroma with a subtle taste of dried grass and hay, finishing with a fresh, pleasantly sweet aftertaste with no astringency. Despite its subtle flavour, this aged white peony has great depth, body and mouth-fill and is a very easy tea to drink.

Proper tea storage is super important. Improper storage leads to flat, flavourless and potentially weird tasting tea. So as a rule of thumb, keep your tea leaves in an airtight container (the less air inside the better) and away from heat, light, moisture and strong odours.
