This is my first white tea, so maybe my real problem is not knowing what to expect. Though not really impressed on my first try, I gave it another whirl today. After three minutes of steeping (my teakettle only seems to hit about 190 max), it was too mild, so I threw the tea back into the pot for another 3 minutes (intended two, but distractions….), which helped.
The peach flavour is, initially mild, in my opinion, and I’m one of those peach-crazy people, so this was disappointing. However, I added a little more honey and that seemed to really bring out the peachiness. Upon the second steep, which lasted closer to ten minutes, there actually seemed to be more peach, so that’s good.
It’s good, especially with the sweetener, but I’m not sure it’s flavourful enough for me even now. It seems I like a punch, something I’ll blame upon my Irish ancestors. Maybe I simply do not understand white teas and need to attend Tea School.
