Mini Peony 2016
Organic Golden White Tea
All classic tastes today had once been novel. In the category of white tea, there is much room for developing a fuller spectrum of fine tastes. Mini Peony is Tea Hong’s answer for a different tasting alternative to the classic White Peonies. Processed from a new cultivar, and grown organically in the scenic mountains in Huangshan, this smaller size version of white peony has all the goodness of genuine white tea, but delivered in the compact, less hairy orchid shape whole leaves. The gold infusion is characterised with its own distinct sweet milky notes as a fine selection in its own rights.

Aroma with creamy, slight sweetness in a milky overtone. Hints of water chestnuts. Clear, canary yellow infusion. Bright, yet sweet and supple infusion which briskness is accented with the light bitterness of raw almond and pear peel. Tints of herbs over an light vegetal undertone. Refreshing, lightly bittersweet aftertaste.
Preheat vessel to 90°C and infuse at slightly lower than the preheat temperature. Use less leaves and longer infusion time for sweeter, more supple body. Begin with a proportion of 1 to 100 for 7 min. Alternatively, fill vessel with water at very slightly over 90°C and drop the leaves over the water very gradually. This way, no preheating is needed.
