After the tremendous response we had in offering White Tea, we decided to get an even higher grade. Originating from the Fujian province in China, Peony White Tea is plucked in the early Spring. These buds and leaves are steamed and dried immediately after picking, which helps retain the natural health benefits in the tea.

I put about 1 cup of leaves in a coffee filter and brew it like coffee. I dump the first pot (I read this gets rid of any caffeine) and then brew another. I save the leaves in the fridge and can easily make 3-4 more pots of tea without losing flavor. It just seems to keep on giving! I pour it over a cup of ice and that's what I drink all day long at work.
I also noticed that with this tea and the Wulongs (and probably all others) the longer the tea sits, the darker and more flavorful it gets. When I make a pot in the morning, it is almost clear when I first pour it. By lunchtime, the tea is much darker and has more flavor. I think this is just the nature of tea in general but just wanted to throw in that observation. Sometimes I'll brew a couple pots at home and pour it in a container and put it in the fridge. By the next day it is as dark as a traditional tea with a bit milder, less bitter taste.
Anyway, the product was a bit dried out. Lots of brown, crumbly at the touch, autumn-like leaves, with dark & light green leaves & a smidgen of soft white needles making up the rest. Disappointing. Smell was earthy & musty & in no way reminiscent of the last few examples of white tea that I have tried. The actual brew, using only boiling water that had settled at room temperature for a solid 10 minutes, yielded only more uninspiring, musty, twiggy, bland tea. Nothing like the soft, lightly fragrant & floral cups I've had from elsewhere. Even the white tea I've had in bag form from several other big names was much more enjoyable.
I hope it was just an off batch, but it seems that it is cheap for a reason.
