White tea is harvested from the spring buds of the tea plan, and this tea is peony silver needles.
When I opened the package, I found White Pearls to be gently fragrant, mostly smelling of flowers. Upon steeping it, I did find the blend to be a little flowery for my tastes, but still very light and refreshing. This one was a good afternoon blend, a little sweet and not too strong. If I’m going to drink a tea that is light and flowery I usually prefer jasmine, but this was lovely to try.
