The honey sweetness of this white tea is naturally infused with fresh red roses according to an artisan tea scenting recipe that creates an elegant and deeply sweet organic rose tea unlike any other. 

About This Tea

This tea is produced according to a very old recipe and technique developed sometime in the 1300s. Fresh flowers have very delicate and complex aromas that are easily absorbed by tea. The aromas of flowers are often only found in the fresh flowers at their peak bloom. The art and skill of flower scenting tea relies on timing, manipulation, separation, careful drying and attentive curing. No flavors or additives are used in this organic method of flower scenting white tea.

We chose Yunnan Silver Needles for its sublime sweetness and ability to absorb the essence of fresh rose flowers. This batch of Silver Needles has a deep flavor formed by the big bud Yunnan cultivars grown in the rich red soils of Jinggu, Yunnan. These high elevation gardens flush a bit later in the springtime due to the cooler conditions in the mountains and produce slow growing and concentrated tea buds that glisten with a frosted appearance, nectar sweetness and noble character. This batch of Silver Needles white tea is comprised of pure, individually plucked tea buds harvested exclusively for ten days in the early springtime. This tea's inherently sweet, nectar-like flavor and fruity aroma is beloved by tea connoisseurs and provides the perfect pairing to amazingly aromatic and succulent tea roses from Yunnan.
