“Meh. Nothing special. Had a few sips/half a cup and decided I wasn’t ready for this tea yet. It has a strong scent of something I don’t enjoy, but the taste isn’t too bad.” Read full tasting note

Description

An exquisite version of the White Peony variety, this is a delicate tea made from unopened leaf buds and the newest two leaves to open on the tea bush. For White Symphony, many more buds are included than is typical for classic White Peony. The liquor is very light, similar to Silver Needles. But the flavor is much more complex: faintly floral, warm and sugary like honeydew or white nectarine. Soft mouthfeel and clean, uplifting finish. If you’ve been enjoying White Peony, we invite you to savor this more refined version.
