The Puritea White Peony


According to The Puritea this tea was grown in the Fujian, China. The dry leaves were a mix of fuzzy silver needles, brown and green leaves. I made this tea in my Breville One-Touch Tea Maker with 180 degree water for three minutes. The liquor was a pale gold color with a honey-like aroma.

The flavor of this tea was incredibly complex. It was vegetal and woodsy with notes of fruit and cocoa that became more apparent with each sip. White peony is one of my favorite teas because it is light and refreshing while still having a lot to off in the taste department. My second steeping was just a delicious as the first. I would definitely recommend this tea.
