Finest Zhenghe Bai Mudan:

While White Peony from Fuding tastes more floral, that from the other earliest region, Zhenghe, tastes longer and deeper. The more tedious curing process is marked by the darker colors on the leaves. This is the best and most classical representation from the origin, aka King of White Peony, a favorite by many white tea connoisseurs.

Soft aroma in tones of cooked grains and new leaf sprouts. Undertones of honey and cream. Bright, malty infusion with tints of herbal roots and floral sweetness. Hints of the high notes of raw ginseng. Sweet aftertaste.

Infusion tips

White Peony of the traditional Zhenghe style is also suitable for shorter steeping time, when a higher tealeaves to water ratio is used.

    Zhenghe White Peony King

    I have had Bai Mudan and Shou Mei white teas, but never a Zhenghe Bai Mudan (always the more common Fuding variety). I was very interested in this Zhenghe style, since the description seemed to fit my preferences more than the Fuding. Opening the package, the aroma is rich and full, kind of like hay, and sweet (a little difficult to describe). The overall appearance is a nice mix of silver, gray, and withered green. The taste is indeed full, deep, rich, and a little sweet, without the floral qualities. It also seems to bring out more of that taste that makes white tea distinctive as a style. This is the best white tea that I have had.

    My First White Tea

    This was the first time I drink white tea and I was actually quite surprised upon opening the packaging. It smelled sweet like cookies/biscuits? I wouldn’t have guessed that it was the smell of tea.
    I infused it using gongfu parameters in a gaiwan and the aroma of the infusion was the same sweet one. However it didn’t taste like that at all, I got impressions of green tea although a bit faint, and the sweet aftertaste is unlike the creamy sweet aroma. It was really refreshing and light, yet interesting enough because of the long aftertaste and some astringency (I like my tea somewhat astringent because if it is not, I would feel like it is too watery).
    And it’s true that this tea is easy to infuse, it is difficult to go wrong unless you infuse it for way too long because then it will taste bitter. Really nice to drink all day.
