Uncle Lee's Legends of China White Tea (also known as "White Peony") is a delicious tea known for its subtle, complex and mildly sweet flavor. This tea is grown in the mountains of the Fujian Province of China and comes from the tender young buds and leaves that remain after the legendary silver needle white tea has been harvested. White tea undergoes very little processing and the absence of this (steaming, rolling and oxidation) leaves the appearance and cell structure of the leaves basically unaltered. This purity may be what some researchers have said might cause white tea to have a greater concentration of antioxidants than all of the teas that originate from green tea.
