jrcook_tching_review_oct_21_2016Hailing from the Fujian Province is the graceful Bai Mu Dan or Pai Mu Tan tea, which means “white peony” in Chinese. Royal White Peony tea is enjoyed by steeping a single bud and two leaves. Tealicious and delicate, the petals gently unfurl as leaves swirl in an elegant dance inside my teapot.

Time floats on leaves of love… With every sip, I drift in a sea of peonies to an exquisite melody of soft, warm, and fruity flavor notes. Royal White Peony will transport you directly to the beauty of art, life, and love that is boundless within each of us.

“In your light, I learn how to love. In your beauty, how to make poems. You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you, but sometimes I do, and that sight becomes this art.”

– Rumi 

To find further respite in your day, I highly recommend using a glass teapot so you can enjoy the dance of the white peony leaves.


  • Boil fresh water
  • Warm your tea vessel
  • Add 1 -2 spoons of Royal White Peony

The Royal White Peony is available at David’s Tea.
