Name: White Peony
Region: Fuding, Fujian, China
Bought At: Teavivre.com
Price: $5.90 for 1.75oz
First Impressions: Large leaves, grassy, sweet smelling dry leaves
I was anxious to try this as I have liked white peony teas in the past and was curious to see how teavivre‘s would stand up to them; I wasn’t disappointed. It is a warm, smooth tea that has a lot of flavor. It is not quite as naturally sweet as some other white tea varieties. That isn’t a bad thing though, as it has a buttery, grassy complexity that a lot of white teas lack. Something you are more likely to find in a green tea then a white. This tea is forgiving to over brewing, which is great for a forgetful person like me, and stands up well for many infusions. I have been making it when I get to work and brewing it several times throughout the morning. This one also came in a fun little one-use package, I know it’s silly, but I love it!
