Sweet and light floral notes. Nutty after-tones. Spring fresh leaving a cooled mouth.
White Peony Tea Cake
Moonflower is a high quality White Peony from the High Mountains of Guangyang, Fuding. The fresh leaves are traditionally sun-dried on bamboo plaques and expertly cared for to remain tender. The leaves are carefully oxidised to bring out the floral sweetness.
This is a tea that just keeps on giving, it can be infused MULTIPLE times. We’ve gone as far as 30 times from one cup!!!!! An eternal Moonflower….
This particular cake is made of leaves from the Spring 2018 season, and gets better every year as it ages beautifully. We met the tea farmer last year and found out he is the local banker for the village where it is made. He decided to invest in a local tea garden in order to make the best white tea he could find. He has a demanding palate which results in this excellent tea. We were lucky to get some due to its success and high demand in China!
