Tea Review: White Symphony (Adagio)

White Symphony
Type: White
Origin: China
Product Description: 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.

Temperature: 195° F
Amount: 3 grams
Steeping Time: 2 minutes

The dry leaves have an aroma of wood dust with faint floral notes.

The golden infusion has a lightly sweet floral aroma similar to carnations with notes of honey.  The taste is light with notes of sesame and dandelion and a sweet finish.

The character of this tea changes between the first and second infusions, becoming intriguingly savory as well as being sweet.  

This tea was provided as a free sample without guarantee of a review.
