Okay, I have virtually no experience with white teas. In reading TeaChat, I've seen a lot of people like White Peony, so I decided to buy some. I purchased some locally from a tea vendor and just tried it today. I don't know anything about it, as I gave the original package to my mom and kept a small amount for myself. The vendor only lists it as "White Peony OG". Anyway, being a green oolong lover, I had no idea this tea would be so roasted. The scent of the wet leaves is totally roasted, I got a whiff of ashes, smoke, which I really dislike. Brewing the tea on first infusion it was a dark gold, and the taste wasn't bad (not bitter or anything), but could taste all that roastedness. Does have a sweet aftertaste. Second infusion was amber colored. Also maybe I didn't brew correctly, first steep used boiling water that I cooled off a little. Second steeping just poured more water, so it was cooler water. So this is very similar tasting/smelling to a medium roasted oolong. Is this typical for White Peony? I thought with name White Peony, it would be much more floral and greener.
