My experience with white teas is, sadly, quite limited, but when I got this in a swap with Angrboda (thanks hon) I was eager to try out this tea that had garnered such rav reviews from her.

The dry leaves don’t really look like anything special, in fact they look almost identical to ones used in Adagio’s White Cucumber (bad association – I’m sorry). They brewed up a pale gold-coloured beverage, with a light, slightly-sweet odor. The flavour is…I’m not sure how to describe it except that I think this is what a good white peony tea is supposed to taste like.

Thumbs up to the Angry Dane, she’s found a winner! XD

Have you tried Adagio’s White Peony? It is a great quality tea, especially if you are just starting out with whites.

Angrboda

YAY! I’m glad you liked it. :D Takgoti has mentioned walnut notes in the flavour and I agree with that. Everything just clicked into place for me when I saw that.

Whee! Celebration tea!

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
