Description:

White Peony (Loose Leaf) is a delicate, crisp white tea known for its neutral, nut-like character.


Taste:

Davidson's White Peony (Loose Leaf) offers a smooth, chocolatey base with a fragrant, floral finish.


Origin:



       Davidson's sources its organic White Peony (Loose Leaf) tea from ZhengHe County in the Fujian Province of China. The tea farm is located high on the mountain and is covered by the surrounding forest in the area. This image, taken by Davidson's co-owner during a recent visit, shows some of the surrounding trees over the top of the tea plants.

History:

White Peony sourced from ZhengHe County has strictly been cultivated with the traditional practice of withering, as opposed to the modern practice of baking. In this way, the tea leaves are simply spread out to wither in the sun, if weather permits, for about two days. This natural process promotes light fermentation and the protection of leaf benefits, like antioxidants.


Ingredients:


Organic white tea.


Brewing:


  1. Heat fresh, filtered water just short of the boiling point.
  2. Add 2 grams of tea to a infuser, or straight into an 8-oz. mug.
  3. Pour the heated water into the mug.
  4. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Strain tea leaves, or take out the infuser.
  6. Sip and enjoy Davidson’s organic tea.

Good as a base tea

This is the only white peony tea I've ever had, so I have nothing to compare it to. With that being said, the taste is very nice. It's a light tasting tea and doesn't stand out on it own. I prefer to mix it with spearmint or peppermint to make iced tea, rather than drinking it plain. I've only noticed a few sticks in the bag, so the quality of it seems great. But I'm pretty new to the loose leaf teas, so I don't have much experience with determining quality.

...it's not THAT consistent, but Davidson's is definitely one of the most consistent white peonys out there. You will not get a bag of sticks like you will elsewhere. In the bag the fragrance is clean, grassy, nice enough. In the cup it is not the very best - I find it a tiny bit muddy, but still very nice - but it's also not the most expensive, and given that white peonys can be all over the map in quality and consistency, one batch from the same supplier may be unrecognizable compared to another, I've been impressed that, year after year, Davidson's is pretty reliable. A good, basic, not jaw-dropping but impressive for the price white peony. It has become my go-to basic, every day white.
