Leaf Type: White
Where to Buy: Frontier Co-Op
This tea takes its name from its silvery, unopened buds. It has a delicate, ethereal flavor that builds on the palette with each sip.
It amazes me how different white tea can taste from tea company to tea company, even when dealing with the same type (White Peony or Bai Mu Dan) of white tea.
This White Peony from Frontier Co-Op possesses a surprisingly earthy scent that reminds me of a the smell of a damp, musty wood with hints of moss and earth.
The taste is fresh and sweet. It is a delicate flavor but it is one that develops as I make my way down the cup. At the start, I found it to be quite delicate but now as I am near the end of the cup, I’m finding it to be really flavorful. There are pleasant fruit-like flavors and a slight vegetative quality to the cup.
And like the scent suggests, there are also interesting woodsy tones to the flavor, as well as a slight earthy taste. It isn’t overwhelming and it adds to the intrigue of the cup.
An enchanting cup of white tea, this White Peony from Frontier Co-Op!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
