drank White Peony by Adagio Teas
44 tasting notes

Upon opening the bag I was rather surprised to find out that this tea smelled like chocolate! When brewed, it has a very delicate floral aroma to it. The color is quite interesting- an almost golden hue. It’s definitely not a delicate white, as the grade would imply, so from some reviews I’ve read that point that out as a negative, I really have to scratch my head. This is coming from a person that enjoys more of the bold flavors that come with lower grades, though. The aftertaste is very sweet and like the dry scent suggested, there’s a faint taste of chocolate, too.

I’m currently attending college. I’m just about done with my undergraduate study in art history. In my free time I love playing piano (Chopin!) and composing music. I also enjoy writing poetry. Really, I just love the Romantic period in art (with the exception of the visual arts- go figure) and continually draw my inspiration from that era.

I’m very interested in nutrition and using herbs to heal. Herbs also taste great, so that’s just another bonus! Before I got into tea, I got into herbs first. I think I’m pretty weird in this regard. I can’t imagine many people would find drinking a decoction made from tree bark to be very tasty… and yet I do. Purely for taste, I love peppermint and ginger more than any other herb. I could, and do, drink those almost daily. I also love rooibos and honeybush.

I have a penchant for Indian & Chinese black teas and Japanese greens, but I’ll try anything once. I’m trying to get into other types of tea as well. I prefer to drink my teas plain, but I’ll very seldom add honey to some herbs (ginger).
