type: white

origin: china

caffeine: light

price level: $$$$

Also known as Pai Mu Tan or Bai Mu Dan, White Peony is a sweet, mild Chinese tea made from unopened tea buds, as well as the two newest leaves to sprout. The freshly harvested leaf is allowed to wither dry in the sun. The natural oxidation that takes place during this withering gives White Peony beautiful, plush flavors. The nose is warm, floral and rich like fruit blossoms. The liquor is golden and bright. Clean, succulent floral-fruit flavor, melon sweetness, a touch of gentle savoriness and rounded mouthfeel. If you are beginning your exploration of white tea, or even just tea in general, our White Peony tea will serve a wonderful introduction. Steep at 180°F for 3-5 minutes

      Very smooth and light. A perfect afternoon pick me up. Just a clean crisp taste.

      A very light and subtle white tea with floral flavors. Not my favorite though. It's a little too underwhelming to me.

      Very light and subtle floral taste. Perfect for an afternoon break in the garden. No sweeteners needed.

      very wonderful, delicate, light, subtlely floral w/o going too far - wow

      Adagio has the best white tea I’ve ever found. This one is strong for a white tea but still smooth. It has a grassy note too.

      I really love this one, i was worried about it being overly florally, but it isn't.

    • 

      A light, delicate white tea. Hints of floral flavor and not too sweet, but I still considered it to be refreshing. Will definitely buy again

      Absolutely delicious. Characteristically subtle, it has a sweetness hovering over top. It's almost floral, almost fruity, but definitely tasty.

      A good, solid white tea. Less sweet than silver needle, and slightly astringent. I think I had a cup with some more broken up leaves, but it was still very good.

    • 

      Light floral tea. Delicate and soft flavored, no overpowering perfume taste.

    • 

      The dry leaf smell was very reminiscent of, well, dry leaves. Like the start of Autumn; when green is just starting to turn to brown. The tea itself has a mild flavor that a bit of sugar helps bring out more. I'm not usually a fan of 'light' teas, because I have hard time tasting them, but this one I can actually taste and can appreciate the subtleness. ... 1st steep: 3min at 180-190degF .. 2nd steep: 4min at 180-190degF

      Very nice, floral and sweet, almost like a white tea version of a jasmine tea.

      Love this tea!!! Pure tea whit the touch of flower. Very enjoyable

      This is a perfect standard for good white tea. It has a lovely subtle flavor, and in spite of the softness of the flavor, it can be brewed several times over. Just make sure you brew it as Adagio recommends, with water about 180 degrees Fahrenheit, not boiling water.

      Love this tea. Low caffeine content. It has a flora hint of peony and it's perfect

    • 

      very subtle, not quite what I'm usually looking for in a tea, but it has its moments.

    • 

      This is a fantastic starter tea to get into white teas. It has a subtle and delicate flavor that is lightly sweet and floral with a hint of honeydew melon. It's a great one to try out different brewing techniques to find out what you like, as different flavors become more pronounced depending on your water temperature and steeping time. A favorite for sure.

      A wonderful introduction to white tea. It's a light tea with a beautiful golden color. A brush of floral gives it a wholesome, holistic taste. Add a little sugar to sweeten it, or sip it hot and undoctored in all its earthiness.

      This is a really light white tea. It has a slight vegetal and floral smell but its incredibly delicate
