A lovely light tea, fairly typical of a white tea. I’ve never had a tea with peony in it before, so I was expecting this to taste overwhelmingly floral. Thankfully the floral aspect is equally delicate and complimentary to the white tea, rather than competing with it. There’s also a lovely subtle sweetness to this.

I bought only a single serving packet of this and in the future I’d buy another sample of it from time to time, but I don’t think it’s one that I’d need to get in full size. It’s good, but it doesn’t jump out at me as a “buy me now” kind of tea. The bonus is that this tea comes with a built-in conversation starter…how to correctly pronounce “peony”. I say “pee-ownee”, my Dad says pee-eny…I suspect we’re both wrong

Jumping in with useless information! The dictionary correct pronunciation of peony is ‘PEE-uh-nee’. Pee-OH-nee is a Southern US regional pronunciation, and from there I’m sure there are plenty of other regional pronunciations (to our north and what have you) that I’m not familiar with :)

I believe that White Peony tea, also known as Bai Mu Dan, is just the name of an unflavored Chinese white tea. It doesn’t actually have peony flowers or flavoring in it. It tastes like hay and sunshine to me. :)

Thanks CHAroma. Clearly I didn’t read the ingredients – whoops!

LOL! No worries. I recall I first wanted to try it because I thought it had peonies in it too. ;)

That’s my mug! I’ve never really been a huge fan of Winnie the Pooh, but I like the fact that this mug is more or less clear. Plus, I can’t help but giggle when I say “ewww …I have Pooh on my mug” and people in the room gawk in horror before realizing I’m talking about Winnie. Am I easily amused? heck yeah!

A little something about my interests? – In no particular order, I love tea, makeup, paper crafting (card making), home renovations, and gardening.

As a rule, I tend to drink my tea without adding anything, but if that doesn’t work for me, I indulge in the fact that rules are meant to be broken. Yep! I’m such a rebel…sometimes I even color outside the of lines :P
