White Tea w/ Orange Blossom Thés de la Pagode (France Organic)
Thés de la Pagode use imperial or fine picking methods: the young shoots or “pekoe” are picked in springtime from small gardens high in the mountains. The bud and the first two leaves contain 73% of the antioxidants of the plant Delicately flavoured with Orange Blossom, this highly-sophisticated, full-bodied tea is made from the lovely “Pai Mu Tan” variety of tea, meaning “white peony” in Chinese. Formerly reserved for China’s Emperors, this white tea is unique in how it is produced: the leaves are neither rolled nor stewed but are allowed to dry naturally in order to preserve their quality and flavour. Harvested up in the high mountains of China, this tea is floral with sweet, refreshing and delicate notes. Infused with the natural flavour of orange blossom, this drink is a delicious invitation to calm and relaxation. Often enjoyed in China for its thirst-quenching properties, it is sipped slowly, as a way of life, and will seduce you with its subtlety and soothing taste.
