A rare find.

I was initially looking for China White Peony Tea but it was out of stock, the very helpful team at Rare Tea Company recommended the Malawi Peony White Tea as a alternative and I am over the moon to have discovered another delicious tea. It is very delicate in taste not quite as sweet as the China white but still refreshing and light. I will certainly order this one again.

This tea arrived in a separate bag to the rest of my order. It has clearly been packaged with extra care and I can see why after tasting the result. As the other reviews say, absolutely divine flavour. Sweet and moreish with every sip and can easily be brewed several times while retaining colour and flavour for each cup. I even let it accidentally brew for 15 minutes recently and was worried I had ruined it. I tried the brew and it was an explosion of flavour with zero bitterness! The caffeine hit was an added bonus! Excellent quality and I will be recommending for anyone who would like to try a white tea that stands well on its own.

This is my absolute favorite white tea! It's delicate and elegant, with a sophisticated flavor, slightly floral without being overpowering. If you like Oolong, you'll probably love this too.

Another lovely tea!

This tea has a delightful flavour with white tea and peony combining to provide a sweet cuppa. If you prefer a sweeter tea, this is a great one to try.
