From Vicony Teas

White Peony, also known as Pai Mu Tan, is a sweet, mild tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaves are allowed to wither and dry in the sun. The natural oxidation which takes place during this withering gives White Peony Tea beautiful, plush flavors. The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms.

White Peony Tea is probably the most common white tea in the market and most widely loved white tea. With more and more people who like aged white tea, white tea is now also pressed into cakes like puerh as white tea cakes are convenient for storing. White Peony Tea Cakes have a wide range of price in the market with huge quality differences. The White Peony Tea cake shown here is sourced by ViconyTeas from the tea farmers in Taimu mountain in Fuding and made in the traditional sun-dried production way and stone-mould pressed. You would find the White Peony Tea cake totally different from the widely available ones made in the large-scale industrialized way if you try it. The White Peony Tea cake is good for consumption in the current year of production but if stored for years, it would taste better.

This is the third tea cake I ordered from Vicony Teas. The others tasted pretty good so far; I’m hoping this one will too.

Leaf Quality:
The leaves of this tea were loosely compacted in the usual Bing shape. These were some of the whitest leaves I’ve ever seen from a White Peony. Almost every leaf was covered with downy, white fur. Even the leaves of a richer green color had a whitish hue. The initial scent was rather sweet and reminded me of dried roses. The Brewed tea leaves turned slightly darker, were more green, and smelled lightly floral. I could already discern what the liquor would taste like.

Brewed Tea:
The leaves produced a light yellow liquor. It’s scent was very light, as was the flavor. Though light, it sure was delicious. It was sweet, floral, and fruity. It was like a hummingbird drinking nectar. The first brew was excellent.
Second Steeping
The second steeping reminded me of a Ti Kwan Yin Oolong. It was smooth, quite floral, and sweet.
Third Steeping
This brewing was even better than the first two. All the qualities of the second steeping were present, but were more pronounced. Each sip finished with a melon aftertaste that evolved into a citrus one quickly before disappearing.
Fourth Steeping
This steeping was more mellow than the third. However, it was still just as good. The delicate tastes mingled together in this cup. It could easily last 2 or 3 more steepings with longer steep times.

This was a wonderful tea. I’m very glad I bought this, and can’t wait to try the samples they sent me.
