Scheherazade’s Super Sipdown (Long) Weekend #14
So, here we are with the final sipdown of the weekend. I actually have another in the little box that I set aside, but I’m not sure I’ll have time to get to it today. Possibly I’ll save it for next week. At least I’m back under 300…staying there will be the biggest challenge!
As white peony teas go, this is one of my favourites. The leaves are actually green, and they look so fresh. They’re bigger than any white peony leaves I’ve seen previously, and not so broken up. I used about 1.5 tsp of leaf, and a slightly shorter brew time than I gave my last cup. This resulted in a lighter, less heavily floral flavour, which I like a lot. Sometimes on a hot day, a heavy floral is not what I’m looking for. Without the floral flavour, this could easily become sweet water. it doesn’t, though. There’s almost a creaminess about it that sets it apart from other white peony teas I’ve tried. It’s very smooth, naturally sweet, light, refreshing and delicious. When I get back to buying again, this could very well become my go-to white peony. Many thanks to Teavivre for this sample.
