Originally named Rose Peony. This delightful blend combines herbaceous Bai Mudan white tea, with mildly citrusy lemon balm, delicate lavender flowers and rose petals. It is not a strongly floral-tasting blend, rather the combination of herbs, tea and flowers creates a brew that is beautifully balanced and satisfying. A wonderfully mellow flavor that is very versatile.
The big surprise with this blend is how amazing it is over ice. Completely different, fruiter, characteristics come out when you brew this tea cold.

8 oz Cup
- Scoop a heaping tablespoon of tea into infuser.
- Heat water to 190°-200° (before boiling).
- Pour 8 oz. of water over tea leaves.
- Steep tea for 3-5 minutes (depending on taste preference).
- Remove infuser and enjoy tea.
It is not recommended to re-steep white teas, as they generally steep out after one time.
Pre-heat your mug or pot with a little hot water before steeping.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping tablespoon of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 190° to 200° F water and let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the infuser and enjoy.
Brewing Iced Tea
Our opinion is that a cooled concentrate works best, as regular-strength brew tends to become watery as the ice melts. So, use the above leaf quantities, but half the water, allow it to cool, then pour it over ice and enjoy! The brew will dilute down to proper strength as the ice melts.
