From Tea Palace

I was in the Tea Palace store today and they informed me that they’ve discontinued the White Peony with Pink Rosebuds. White Peony with Pink Rosebuds is a blend of the finest white tea and whole pink rosebuds. It has a mild, refreshing, delicately rose-scented taste.

Authentic White tea is only grown in the Fujian province of China, where the delicate buds and leaves can only be picked for a few weeks each year.

So I have always only used the cupboard here on Steepster to list teas that I had a significant amount of, generally greater than one ounce. This was good when I did a whole lot of swapping when I didn’t have a lot of tea, because I could always tell the person that I was requesting a swap with that everything in my cupboard had “swappable” amounts in it. Then I was reading some of Sil’s notes about being under 200 teas, etc, and I wondered. How many teas did I actually have? And wouldn’t it be a better way to keep track of all of them than just stuffing them in a sample drawer? So I went through today and logged every single tea in my office, even if there was only a cup left, plus what I could remember from home (but the majority of my tea is at the office, so there will only be a few add-ons). 227 teas! I was afraid it might be worse.

Well, now it’s 226 because I just sipped down this one. I’ve had it for a long time, and as a white tea it is getting on in age. Still delightfully rosey, though. I do like white tea and roses, though I think I like it even better when there is jasmine in the mix, ala the Tea Spot’s Meditative Mind.

Thanks to Dinosaura for this one!

I had a feeling I would like this, it looks very pretty and smells great in the bag. White tea and roses does seem very girly but I’m a chick so I guess it’s all okay. :)

I steeped this for approx. 2 minutes at around 180 F. The aroma of this one is very light and fresh and flowery. The rose was very light and flavorful in my cup, not too perfumey, it was nice. As it cooled off I did notice some bitterness and I wasn’t sure if I accidentally steeped it for too long or at too high a temp.

I did attempt a resteep at a lower temp. and I thought I got better results with the second go around. It’s too bad this is only available in the U.K. but I see that Zhi makes something similar. I’ve been known to put rose petals in my white tea and I buy those in bulk from the health food store. :) It is a nice combination for sure.
