drank White Peony by thepuriTea
2816 tasting notes

Back from the PT- I was really put through the wringer today and was wondering if I’d even be able to move when I got home. I know I need to do this for my long term benefit but it still hurts!

Anyway enough whining for now. I received a sample of this from thePuritea shortly before they went out of business. I had been wondering if I forgot to rinse my dishes properly because something smells slightly “chemically” when I hold my nose up to the cup.

Steeping this for 3 minutes produced a dark yellow clear tea liquor. As far as flavor is concerned it is definitely on the mild side and good for a relaxing moment. As the cup cools I am getting the woody notes along with some nutty ones and peach. The finish is a bit sweet on your tongue. I don’t know that much about white teas but this seems very soothing to me. Perhaps I should look into stocking a white peony?

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
