type: white

origin: china

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

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. Steep at 180°F for 3-5 minutes

      Not being a white tea fan, I was so happy to have enjoyed this tea. Subtle, not grassy.

      This is the first white tea I actually liked. It is pale, light, and thin, but so, so, gorgeously complex! I can usually get multiple steeps out of a serving too - great mileage for your money!

      This white tea is very light. I like it but I like a stronger white tea. I drink this one with a little peach tea added to give it a heartier flavor.

      Extremely delicate. This is the kind of flavor that I expect from a white tea, a perfect example.

      I don't know if I had an off batch or not, but it really didn't do anything for me. I steeped for 3 minutes and got almost no taste.

      very light, subtly fruity flavor that is great for afternoon or morning tea.

    • 

      Simple. It's got a very light spring flavor, doesn't stand out much or linger on the palate. I go for this when I want a cup of something warm and slightly grassy.

      Really a meh cup of tea. I get the hints of floral, but not the nectarine or other fruits. It’s a pretty one note cup of tea without much dimension. It’s fine just not my preference.

      The dry leaves smell really floral, but the steeped tea is a lot more subtly sweet. Really nice

      It does not have any flavor or taste. I followed the brewing instructions but the tea did not taste like anything
