twoleaveswhitepeonyI admit it. I have become a tea snob. I tend to put my nose up in the air when it comes to bagged teas. Yet occasionally I do find a company that does bagged teas right. One such company is two leaves and a bud. They haven’t steered me wrong yet. My sample today is Organic White Peony with Rosebuds.

I brewed up a cup using water that has cooled off from a boil and let it steep for 4 minutes. One thing that I love about their tea sachets is the fact that the brewing instructions are on each and every plastic wrapper that seals up the sachets individually. No more tossing one in your purse then forgetting the brewing suggestions.

Once brewed, the liquor is a light gold in color with a nutty aroma. I think that the rosebuds are there more for the looks then the aroma as I wasn’t able to pick up any of the roses.

This is a hearty white with a full mouthfeel. Very smooth with no astringency or bitterness to be found with a light nutty flavor. This is a tea that is very soothing and I can easily picture myself drinking in the evenings after a hectic day. Very nice.

Would I pick up this tea for myself? Oh yeah, especially since you can also get is as a loose tea. I guess that I am not cured of being a snob.
