Take over 2 seconds to begin loading our site

We support several sites and recently started moving some of those sites over the Cloudflare. In most cases this has worked well and resulted in sites beginning to load after 150 to 200 milliseconds (We are using https://gtmetrix.com to measure this). However, there is one site (WordPress site) that we moved to Clourflare and it takes between 2 to 2.5 second before it starts loading. We have reviewed the settings and it appears that the slow site is setup the same as the other WordPress sites we have on Cloudflare but is taking much longer to start loading. Does any have an idea of why this might be happening?

It’s usually a server side issue. If you bypass Cloudflare, how long does it take? Can you also try https://example.com/cdn-cgi/trace to see if the colo is close to you?
