White Peony (Pai Mu Tan) from Adagio Teas

Style: White Peony Tea – Region: Fujian, China

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 29th, 2015

The aroma of the fluffy leaves is pretty mild, you really need to sniff hard to detect much of an aroma, but when you do there are notes of cucumbers, melons, and a hint of paper and sage.

The taste is, well, you know, it is ok. Nothing to jump up and down about, it starts off with mild notes of cucumber and celery,...

May. 6th, 2015

The aroma of the leaves is nothing short of bright and brisk! Like someone mixed up grapefruit peel, orange blossoms, wildflower honey, and lilies with a green broken vegetation undertone. It is really quite aromatic, and honestly kinda reminds me of my favorite soaps...not that this smells at all soapy, I just have a ...

White Tea from Teatulia

Style: White Tea – Region: Bangladesh

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jan. 30th, 2015

sniffing the teabag I get notes of wildflowers, fresh hay, a bit of lettuce, and a tiny bit of fruitiness at the finish. This is one of the more delicate white teas I have sniffed, giving it a steeping brings out more of the honey and wildflower notes, it reminds me of a summer field in full bloom.


The tea is surp...

Malawi Zomba Pearls White Tea from What-Cha

Style: White Tea – Region: Malawi

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 1st, 2015

The aroma of the little pearls is a zingy mix of cucumber, pepper, bok choy, lettuce, and a little bit of sweet hay at the finish. It borders on savory, but stays more in the refreshing and bright spectrum. It really smells like some delicious drink or even sandwich one would consume on a summer day when seeking someth...

Style: White Tea – Region: Malawi

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 6th, 2014

The aroma is rather rich yet subtle, with sweet notes of plum, a touch of nuts, and of course sticks. It smells like plant matter, freshly broken sticks while walking in a forest, this tea smells like nature and reminds me of walks in the forest.

Whoa! That first steep is sweet! The mouthfeel is light on the tongue,...

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 17th, 2014

Looking at the dry leaves, it doesn't look like a white, it looks like a fuzzy golden tea from Yunnan...sniffing the leaves it has the sweet corn notes of a Kenyan Silver Needle, the heady floral notes of an oolong, and the malty, sweet potato, and caramel notes of a golden Yunnan tea. It tastes just like the liquid sm...

Kenyan Silver Needle from What-Cha

Style: Silver Needle – Region: Kenya

100 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Sep. 4th, 2014

he aroma of this particular silver needle is nothing short of mouthwatering, which is why I advise pouring the tea you wish to sniff out of the bag, don't want to ruin tea by drooling. It is incredibly sweet with notes of peaches and sweet corn, this transitions to floral notes that very much so brings to mind blooming...

Style: Shou Mei – Region: Fuding, Fujian, China

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Aug. 14th, 2014

The aroma is sweet, like a rich blend of muscatel and honey, in fact it reminds me a bit of honey wine (specifically the Grecian Honeyed Wine I used to make when I could imbibe in my younger days) with a nice finish of hay.

The taste, oh man, it is so sweet! I feel like I am drinking tea that tastes like mown hay, f...

The aroma of these adorable silver fuzzy leaves is like a field of wildflowers, there are notes of fresh vegetation, hay, flower nectar, and wildflowers. There are also notes of honey, sweet corn, and lettuce. Silver Needle is a complex yet delicate smelling pile of leaves, I have always enjoyed that about it.

Feb. 11th, 2014

The aroma is quite mild evoking fresh vegetation and early springtime with a hint of floral. Brewed the leaves have the aroma of minerals, vegetation, and sage. The liquid also has notes of sage and smells incredibly clean.

The taste is mild (I have used that word a lot with this tea!) and a bit citrusy. There are ...

97 / 100 Aroma: 10/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Jan. 7th, 2014

The aroma is crisp and clean with notes of cedar and pine with tones of pepper and sage. Once brewed the tea becomes more herbaceous with strong hints of sage and basil, there are notes of pine resin and sweetness of freshly tapped tree sap.

The tea's flavor reminds me of the way that a winter forest smells. It is ...
