When i tasted the Symphony the first time, I didn't read this description first, and my knee-jerk reaction was... hmmm... this tastes alot like Adagio's White Peony, but better.
In my limited experience with white teas, I had found the White Peony from Adagio to be my favorite, topping Silver Needle in complexity, sweetness, and fruity notes. It's been a while since I tried it, but I recognized the similarity to the new White Symphony immediately. I was pretty happy when I read the Adagio description and learned I was on the mark.
To me, the Symphony had a more pronounced taste, not quite as subdued, a bit more fruity and robust. And I can definitely see the honeydew notes. Anyway, if you like Adagio's White Peony, I think you will really enjoy this one.
Edit: Found my original post about White Symphony from a Teaday post:
I tried ... the White Symphony, which reminds me alittle of the standard Adagio White Peony, perhaps more flavorful. One of the best whites I've had... but Peony has been my favorite of all prior to this. First infusion (gaiwan) was moderately astringent with a light floral aroma. Second infusion was not nearly as astringent, but a bolder flavor with a more fruity undertaste and aroma. The color was stronger than my other whites... a deeper golden, almost light caramel color. The spent leaves are huge with lots of buds, really lovely color and aroma. It's a nice white, especially if whites are usually too mild to your tastebuds.
