From two leaves and a bud

White Peony
Organic Whole leaf White Tea with Rose petals

Harvested only during a brief period in early spring, white tea is the unopened bud of the tea plant, handled very delicately to preserve the white “hairs” on the leaves. Ours is very gently sun-dried to preserve the mellow flavor of the tea. A classic organic white tea: smooth and savory, but so light in the cup as to be called “white.”

As I was adding a selection of teas I had just received to my cupboard, I couldn’t decide what tea to try first. All of a sudden, I accidentally clicked the “Log” button on this tea and decided it was fate to try this one first!

First and foremost, this tea is in a bag. However, it’s a lovely, compostable pyramid bag that is not over stuffed in the least. When I added the tea to the hot water, whenever this is the case, the first thing I do is watch the tea inside the bag. In this case, I was able to see each piece of leaf (sort of like a cut whole leaf, but clearly no harsh process) expand to its fullest potential. The pyramid was mostly filled, but even with full expansion, there was still a small amount of space to allow the leaves to expand more if they needed.

Definitely a good start for a tea bag!

The liquor turned out a bit darker than I anticipated, but the aroma is still light and sweet. It is mildly floral in a richer way than a jasmine tea. When it came time to taste the tea, I was a little surprised, as the flavor was a bit lighter than I anticipated, especially with the color of the liquor.

Yet the flavor is very like the aroma in its floral features as an undertone to the simple natural sweetness of the tea. While I think I still prefer the loose, full leaf Bai Mu Dan tea to this, when I am not able to sit and enjoy a nice gongfu tea making, this will not only suffice, but fulfill the need for a pleasurable and delicious tea!

Thank you very much to Two Leaves and a Bud for the sample! I look forward to tasting more!

yay for compostable bags!

Agreed! Not only is it roomy and open for all the tea juices to really make their way into my cup, but I don’t feel bad about using it environmentally as well. :D

Dark in color for a white tea – light in scent – but very ‘pretty’ smelling. Taste is semi-sweet/semi-floral. Aftertaste is a warm-floral hint…semi-earthy. This is a nice tea!

Mid afternoon…wanted a little boost but not too much caffeine. This tea is perfect. It is smooth in the mouth with a hint of sweetness…and just enough caffeine to compel me to write this short review:)
