White Peony
I love this tea. Love love love! Or maybe it’s just “white” tea that I adore? It’s pretty much the strawberry white tea I reviewed last week, only without the strawberry and maybe a little bit heavier on the creaminess and not at all tart. I love that it tastes milky without any dairy product at all. The finish is great as well- slightly floral with that sweet dry aftertaste that lingers for awhile. Nothing beats the strawberry white of course.
Something I find odd though, is that I seem to prefer whites at room temperature. Sure, it’s great to have a nice hot cuppa’ but somehow the flavour really comes out for me once it’s cooled down.
I would definitely buy this tea again, if only it wasn’t so darned expensive! At double the price of most other teas, I only bought a ten gram sample. Boo! Oh well, when I finally try every other tea that I can get my hands on then I will splurge and grab me some more of this yummy stuff.

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
