dragon-pearl-white.jpgLet me start out with the grade of the leaves. They are very, very good grade leaves. I looked up the tea from the manufacturer's website ( ) which sells this tea at 9.50 for a 50 gram container. It is a very well designed website with a lot of information about tea that I found interesting. From the website, I learned this was a white peony ( Bai Mu Dan ) tea, organically grown. This is apparently the second highest grade of Chinese white tea there is.

I used one Tsp in one cup of water and let steep for 3 minutes. I looked up brewing directions for this tea but couldn't really find much. So I just decided to go with the usual white tea steeping time, which is generally 3-5 minutes depending on water temperature as well as your desired tea strength.

The brewed tea has a nice, soft, somewhat sweet aroma that many quality white teas possess. Although it was hard to notice the scent because it is very light and somewhat hard to depict. The taste is.....I must say....very good! It has a light sweet fresh flavor with a soft grassy aftertaste. It reminded me of my grandparent's farm right before things are ready to harvest, when there is that fresh subtle scent that just drifts into your nostrils so nicely!

The tea has a light white/green tint to it. It is a good white tea, quality wise. Yet flavor and aroma just somewhat lacked from all the hype about how great this organic tea is, I guess I just expected a little more. All in all this is a delightful tea, but it just falls short of what I expected.

— To purchase Dragon Pearl White, or for more specific information on ingredients or the story behind this particular tea, click here to go directly to the manufacturer's web site.
