teagchinafancywhite.jpgAccording to TeaGschwendner, this is a “new style” Chinese White Tea from the Fujian Province. It is created by plucking of the bud and first leaf in late March or early April. I wasn't sure what was new about it since it appeared to be very similar to a standard white peony. The aroma of the dry leaves was not out of the ordinary either. I made this tea using my Zarafina tea maker set on strong white. The liquor was a light golden yellow but didn't have too much of an aroma to it.

The flavor of this tea was very subtle, almost too subtle. I had to really work to detect the floral, chestnut and honey notes. I cannot say it was a bad tea but it just didn't do anything for me. For someone who likes the challenge of finding the flavor in a tea like this, it might be worth a try but for a casual tea drinker there are much better varieties to be had. I love TeaGschwendner and this is the first slightly negative review I have given them. I would probably not recommend this tea.
