Tea of May: Peony King White Tea

As the weather warms up, the humid atmosphere makes me drowsy and tired, not only during the day but also in the morning. The daylight is almost too bright for the eyes. The wind is wrestling with the trees that just turned green. Lockdown life isn’t the worst, most of the time. But when the day is like this, you will need some nice tea to cheer yourself up.

My choice is a slightly aged peony king white tea. It’s a higher grade white peony than the normal ones. Ageing gives it the smoothness, calmness and sweetness that comfort us. Coming from the far east mountain in China, it smells fresh and mellow. The tiny hair quietly lies on the buds of the tea cake. The rest of the cake shows some good signs of 4-year storage, the colour is much darker than the new cakes.

I picked smaller teacups for the tea, some very thin, hand-painted blue and white porcelain teacups with a bit of red decoration. A small amount of tea was enough for a morning session. The water was boiling. You could listen to it.

The first round was light in both colour and taste. Some people would say it doesn’t taste much. I think this is the beauty of tea tasting. You get to witness the full circle of change. As the session went on, more flavour came out, as well as colour. It had a light yellow colour, clear. It tasted sweet like honey, clean like spring water. A long exhale at the end just made the whole morning experience perfect.

(If you are a fan of fasting, it helps to deal with hunger in the morning without hurting your digestion. )
