The White Peony is made from the buds and leaves that remain after the famous Silver Needle has been harvested. While the cup color is darker and the aroma bolder, the natural sweetness clearly identifies the close relationship to the Silver Needle. Due to the size of the leaves, this tea cannot be measured with a teaspoon.
