Delicious but pricey this light tea is great both hot or over ice. If you are ever in Philly visit STEAP. It's a great tea shop and the lady who owns it is really knowledgeable.

Apr. 15th, 2013

I normally like white peony tea more than silver needle because it is richer and darker. Judging by the appearance of the leaf, I would expect this tea to be lighter in color and flavor.

But I found this tea to be very dark and rich in flavor when brewed. Aroma is strongly fruity, a characteristic I don't usually ...

87 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 3rd, 2013

A top-notch white tea for a very low price: $30 a pound for a white tea that is organic certified and is among the better examples of this style of tea that I've sampled.

I found this tea was on the light side for pai mu tan or white peony tea, both by color and flavor, but it was still pleasant and flavorful.

Organic White Peony (Bai MuDan) Tea from TeaVivre

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Mar. 14th, 2013

This tea is very light and a bit floral. It tastes a bit like a watered down green tea. It is definitely not bitter, and not very sour or really even sweet. It is not at all astringent.

It when brewed for about 2 minutes, it produced a pale amber color. I brewed it a second time, for much longer, and it was a littl...

Mar. 5th, 2013

I found this to be a finicky tea which required care in brewing and which I was not always in the mood to enjoy. To be fair, I tend not to be a huge fan of silver needle, but even then this was not my favorite example of such a tea. Contrast this with TeaVivre's white peony, which I thought was one of the best exampl...

Feb. 25th, 2013

This tea is mild and almost a little sweet, with some cucumber notes. Someone who is new to tea or expanding their tastes might find this tea easy to drink with no added sugar. I brewed it as directed, for about 2 minutes, and was satisfied with the results. I am not very familiar with white teas, but I enjoyed this on...

Feb. 25th, 2013

The most aromatic white peony I've sampled yet.

Dry leaf looks much lighter and with more downy tips than usual for this type of tea. Aroma of the dry leaf is intensely floral and delicate, with melon-like tones that I normally only encounter in silver needle.

When brewed as recommended, there is only a hint of ...

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...

Feb. 1st, 2013

This tea was wonderful as a complete, sensual experience. The leaves are light and elegantly pointed, covered in fuzzy silver-white hairs. They didn't smell like much when it was dry, straight out of the package. It was a bit nutty and a bit floral, maybe. But once I had brewed them the leaves gave off a completely une...

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.

Jul. 3rd, 2012

Normally I don't have tea with my breakfast, but I decided to try it out with a cup of Ten Ren White Tea this morning. It had a mild and smooth taste, with only a slight hint of bitterness after drinking. While I normally prefer water I juice in the morning, I thought this tea was refreshing and would have it with bre...

Jun. 27th, 2012

Smallish pearls unfurl to olive-colored leaf with lots of tip. Tea seems much more oxidized than normal for a tippy white tea.

I did not like the steeping recommendations; the cup came out quite bland when steeped this way, but this is always true for me of delicate white teas, like silver needle and others. I fo...

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 22nd, 2012

Snow Leopard is a white tea though its aroma and flavor seem very close to green tea.

The predominant flavor is one of light grassiness while the taste on the back of the tongue and the finish have a pleasing but very subtle fruitiness.

May. 10th, 2012

I love white tea. I've had countless varieties. Bai mudan has never been my favorite. In my experience, it never matched up to bai hao yinzhen. This particular bai mudan compltely revolutionized my view.

The taste is just as pure as any yinzhen, but much sweeter. You won't need sugar, honey, or even a stevia leaf fo...

I really enjoyed the floral scent of this tea and its taste. Its flavor was rich, smooth, and full, with an imperceptible aftertaste. It brewed a dark-amber color. This is one of the better teas I've tried from Two Leaves and Bud and I will definitely be drinking it again!

Apr. 12th, 2012

I find white teas tend to darken with age, and this one is darker than current-year samples of shou mei I have tried in the past, but it still had quite a lot of green leaf.

This was one tea that I really had to brew before I noticed its quality...the dry leaf looks and smells relatively unremarkable, but upon brewi...

Apr. 4th, 2012

The description of Ten Ren's white tea in tea bags is pretty accurate. The taste is mild and a bit earthy, and actually not so different from their wulong teas. The overall effect of the tea is smooth and straightforward, but without many characteristics of Bai Mudan, Shoumei, or other white teas, really. My initial im...

I really like this tea. I like dark and strong white teas. I didn't think much of it at first, but I started drinking it all the time because it's convenient. It doesn't take long to get really strong, and it's not bitter at all, which I like. Now it has grown on me, and I never get tired of it. I drink it with cream a...

Dec. 29th, 2011

I'm very naive when it comes to white teas and prefer stronger blends myself. Even I can clearly tell this is a quality tea, very smooth and light 'clean' taste with a tad touch of grassiness. Sugar would likely kill it as it's naturally sweet on its own. Uplifting and refreshing, just not something I'd drink normally ...

This Foojoy Shoumei has similar color to their Bai Mudan. The aroma is milder in the Shoumei, and has a hint of fruit. The taste of the Shoumei is also milder than that of their Bai Mudan, but very smooth and with a hint of sweetness. Overall, though, these teas are very similar. This is perhaps the milder and slightly...

Sep. 27th, 2011

I'm not a big fan of the silver needle style of tea, but I am beginning to distinguish between different ones to a degree.

From looking at the leaf, this is unambiguously a silver needle tea, but interestingly, the aroma of the brewed tea is much more like white peony tea. The appearance of the leaf, both dry and b...

I want to preface this review by saying that I tend not to be a huge fan of silver needle tea in general; I prefer darker, more full-bodied white teas. I tend to always think that silver needle is overpriced.

Silvery-white leaves brew a darkish colored cup, especially dark for a silver needle. Used leaves show a p...
