This aged tea is old enough to vote! It was picked in 2001 and has only been getting better since then. The leaves have continued to oxidize (darken) which is what makes this tea different from regular white peony. As they age, the leaves have developed a rich flavor of melon and herbs. The velvety sweetness of a high-grade white tea remains and grown deeper, becoming fuller and rounder. You will note a very full mouth feel, yet the taste is clean and offers a naturally sweet, herbaceous lingering aftertaste. This tea was grown in the Zhenghe province of China.
