White Peony tea is a slightly stronger style of white tea. Rather than carefully picking only silvery Spring buds, Shou Mei is picked later in the season and uses older leaves, often with little care put into removing the stems...

Shou Mei is a very stem-y and leafy loose left. Caina says to steep 1tbsp for about 25 seconds, with all the stems and big leafs it's pretty hard to measure. It's actually a lot easier just to eyeball and take a guess, if you drink a lot of loose leaf tea it's not that hard to guesstimate it. To me it has a light flowery sweet flavor with little smell. I actually over steeped mine, for about 45 seconds witch gave it a light bitterness. I did this on purpose because I like strong teas and this is a very light flavor so to give it a bit of a stronger kick that's what I did. They say you can resteep about 4 times, however I can't say if that's true as I've only drank this one twice so far.
