Chamomile Rose Silver Needle White Tea, 2017
DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, THIS TEA IS SOLD OUT.
One scorching, sunny day the wise tea master Lao Cha ordered his student to prepare a tea that would cool off the body.
— But master! How can I make a hot tea that will at the same time cool you down?
— This is not hard, answered Lao Cha. You must take some Bai Hao Yin Zhen and add to it some rose buds and chamomile flowers. Try it, and you’ll see how your whole body blooms after conquering the heat!
This tea is made of Fuding needle white tea mixed with rose and chamomile. When smelling the tea, you will feel the fragrance of rose. Then, after taking a small sip, you will taste the flavor of chamomile. The refreshing flavor of white tea accompanies the floral scent. Having rich flavor, this tea is especially good for drinking during hot summer days. White tea is good for relieving summer heat, and chamomile is known for reducing body temperature. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is believed that chamomile, rose, and white tea has medicinal value.
