Name: White Symphony
Region: Fujian province, China
Bought At: Adagio.com
Price: $2 for a five cup sample
First Impressions: Large leaves, looks like white peony
Upon visiting Adagio’s website I found out why white symphony and white peony looked so much alike to me – white symphony is a type of white peony tea. Like the other white peony, this tea is very mellow and smooth. I actually think that it has slightly subtler flavors than the other peony, which, until now I wouldn’t have thought possible without tasting watery. It does however manage to do this, and quite well. I feel like I should not give this a 3 / 5 rating because that is where all the white teas I have tried landed so far, but it really is in the same category: just above average, good, but definitely nothing overly exciting. Three it is!
