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.
