zhiwhitepearAccording to the Zhi Tea website this tea is simply divine as well as exceptionally light and crisp. They use orgainic bai mudan blended with apple pieces and pear flavoring. Upon opening the tea I appreciated right away the full appearance of the tea leaves as well as apple bits that were large and easy to see.

The fragrance of the dry leaves was vaguely like hay which is not unusual to me for a white tea. I also picked out a white chocolate smell which was a little confusing. As per instructions on the package, I steeped this using a heaping teaspoon for every 6 ounces of water. The temperature of the water was 195 and the tea was steeped for 3 minutes.

When I poured my cup I was incredibly surprised to smell...nothing. Hard as I tried I could not pick out any sort of scent. So I tasted it expecting the same thing. However, I was relieved that the tea does in fact have flavor despite the lack of fragrance. I could most definitely pick out the dainty flavor of the white peony tea, which is what Bai Mu Dan is. Right over the top of that was a fruity apple flavor. The apple was not strong and I believe I actually tasted more of the acidic nature of apples rather than a straightforward apple taste. I was sad not to taste any pear flavors. The overall taste of the tea is lovely and strong enough to make the fruity flavor noticeable and yet not intense. Delicate but flavorful is how I would describe this tea. I enjoyed it very much but found that I had to forget the name of the tea had pear in it. Perhaps the pear flavoring adds to the fruitiness without being obvious.
