Review: Adagio White Peony

“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 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.”


This just wasn’t for me, folks. A simple white tea with a light floral flavor, White Peony seems to have a more impactful aftertaste than anything else, and unfortunately, I’m not a fan. Slightly bitter and medicinal, the blend is neither comforting nor energizing, its high caffeine content making it less appealing in combination. If you’re a fan of white teas, then perhaps you’ll find this blend serviceable. Otherwise, I’d advise to keeping looking.
