Picture of White Tea

White Tea from Twinpeak Tea

Style: White Tea – Region: China

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Apr. 27th, 2014

This tea is kind of weird. I don't know what to think of it. It smells kind of like a meaty soup, with a smoky aroma. I don't even know how to describe the flavor. It doesn't really taste like what I think of as white tea. It has sort of a muddled, soggy, and rich quality, like soup. I added cream and sugar.

I don't like the aroma much - to me, it smells like raisins and cereal. It tastes good, but more fruity than I would like. It has a raisin-like flavor, too. I added cream and sugar.

I really like this tea. It has a nice smoky aroma. The flavor is strong and rich and not too bitter, but it's still crisp. One of the best black teas I've had. I added cream and sugar.

I really like this tea. It has a deep, smoky aroma that I like. The flavor seems kind of like lapsang souchong, but without the heavy sweetness. It has a crisp quality. I added cream and sugar.

I like this tea. It has a weird kind of aroma, but it's good overall. The flavor is strong, crisp, and not too bitter. I added cream and sugar. It's interesting that on the package it recommends adding cream and not milk, because I always add cream to my tea.

Apr. 19th, 2013

This tea has an overwhelming honey-like aroma that I find a bit repulsive. I don't like the flavor of honey much, though. I brewed it for 10 minutes to make it strong enough, and the flavor was still pretty subtle and watery-tasting, but it's okay. It's interesting. I don't usually like oolongs much, so I probably like...

This tea smells like a campfire. The smoky aroma is kind of strong. I like it, but I could probably get tired of it easily. It tastes kind of weirdly sweet. I have mixed feelings about the flavor. I added cream and sugar.

Feb. 11th, 2013

This tea is pretty good. It turned out really light-colored when I first brewed it, compared to other white peony teas. It also took a long time. It's pretty flavorful - it has a nice sweet flavor, but it doesn't have the same intensity to it as the Prince of Peace tea that I always drink. I don't like it as much. I ad...

This tea is interesting. I like it. It has an aftertaste that I don't quite know how to describe, but it's not bitter. It tastes rich, a little like bread or something. I added cream and sugar.

Jan. 10th, 2013

The aroma is almost repulsive to me, but I don't like high-quality green teas, and this tea has a base of green oolong. The flavor is subtle. It's not as strong as I would like it, but the ginger stands out, and I don't like that. I added cream and sugar.

This tea has an interesting aroma. It smells kind of like burning wood. It's a little weird. I like the flavor, though. It's smooth. I didn't know this was oolong when I tried it, and I was surprised to find out. It's very dark. I added cream and sugar.

I don't like this tea as much as the white peony that I usually drink (Prince of Peace) because it tastes greener, and I don't like green tea. It's also more expensive. I added cream and sugar.

I'm not sure how I feel about this tea, or how to describe it. It has a raisin-like flavor that kind of turns me off, but it's interesting if I don't think about it. The aroma reminds me of something, but I can't remember what it is. I added cream and sugar.

The first time I brewed this tea, it had a dry aroma, but I liked it. Although it was a bit bitter, it was strong and full-bodied. The second infusion had a more flavorful and interesting aroma, and was less bitter, but still strong. I liked it better. I added cream and sugar.

This tea is interesting. It has a strong aroma of molasses, which is a little weird. The flavor is pretty good. It's strong and deep. I added cream and sugar. It's kind of hard to brew with my small infuser because the balls expand so much.

I don't think this is my kind of tea. It's a little weird, but all right. I'm not sure how to describe it. It doesn't have a very strong flavor, and I tend to like strong tea with bold flavors. I added cream and sugar. It's not worth the price to me. It also generates a lot of foam in the leaves while brewing, and ther...

This tea is okay. I don't like the flavor that much. It reminds me of flake cereal. It didn't seem very strong when I first tasted it, but I brewed it a long time. Now that I'm noticing the flavor more, it seems stronger. I added cream and sugar.
