Don't let the delicate name fool you – she packs a punch. Hand-picked during the first flush of Spring harvest, White Peony consists of buds and leaves that are so young and fresh, they’re still covered with silvery white down. With less oxidation time than green and black teas, white tea preserves more catechins, making this brew a superior antioxidant infusion.
White tea naturally supports digestion and has for centuries been recommended by Traditional Chinese Herbalists for its effect on absorption of fats and starches. This makes it the perfect after lunch choice... not to mention the gentle caffeine boost to buoy you through the afternoon.
White peony is renowned for its rich, robust flavor. It’s considered to be mellow and earthy, but highlighted by sweet florals. It’s refreshing, smooth, full-bodied and fragrant.

CUSTOMERS LOVE PIQUE
This is my new go-to tea when I want a tasty little pick me up! I always make sure to stash one on my bag- love the ease of use with these magic little packets of absolute goodness. Too convenient! Love that I can trust the source and quality, and know that I'm not exposing myself to harmful toxins as it's hard to get away from these days.
On the days that I don't want English Breakfast, I choose White Peony: It has a little less caffeine but still brews up brown and is super satisfying. White Peony provides a noticeable boost to mood and gentle, sustained energy, unlike other teas that seem to just provide caffeine and its effects. White Peony, as I said, is brown; it's not pale in color as I expected, but the flavor is more mild than black teas. I do love the flavor and find it to be a restful, mellow tea. I love the quality and healthfulness of Pique teas, so it's fun to have a variety on hand.
I love White Peony. It's the first thing I drink in the AM. I like it warm in 16 ozs of filtered water. No sweetener, no lemon. It's super easy on my stomach, gives me a nice boost, light and refreshing but still some depth to the flavor. It will be a staple in my tea collection. Hope to see other white varieties coming .... Silver Needle ??? Thanks Pique !!!!

It did not have the flavor or scent of the beautiful Peony I was expected.
I’ve tried a wide variety of Pique teas and have enjoyed lots of them....this is one of my favorites. It’s not extremely strong tasting and I enjoy it especially after lunch if I need a pick me up. It’s delicious and I’ll always keep this on hand. Thank you Pique!
Another delicious tea from Pique...smooth taste and beautiful color...the quality can't be beaten.
It has quite a “bite” to it and both my husband and I added a few drops of monk fruit sweetener.
