Literally translated as "Iron Goddess of Mercy", this superb semi-fermented tea from the Fujian province is named after a Buddhist deity.
The leaves are subjected to an intricate and lengthy production process which results in a tea that is mellow and sweet with a warm, mildly toasted flavour and a light floral character.
Brew at approximately 80 degrees centigrade and always drink without milk.
Also known as Bai Mudan or White Peony, this exceptional white tea is highly regarded in China for its distinct, delicate character and slightly floral note.
Newly-formed buds are picked, along with the two adjacent leaves, and these are then allowed to wither naturally in the sun. The resultant tea is light with a honeyed sweetness and peony flavours.
Brew at approximately 80 degrees centigrade and always drunk without milk.
