The plum blossom, known as the meihua in Chinese (梅花; pinyin: méihuā), symbolizes perseverance and resilience in the face of adversity because plum blossoms bloom most vibrantly during the harsh cold months of winter. Plum trees usually grow for a long time.

About This Tea

Ancient trees are found throughout China, Korea and Japan where their blossoms have been collected for making confections, liquors and sweet fragrant flower teas. We developed a special type of scented and aged Plum Blossom tea made by blending the fresh winter plum blossoms and Yunnan Dian Hong Red Tea. This tea is alluring and elegant while deep and strong. The taste and aroma are well integrated and balanced with a fine tannin structure. The tea has a unique floral aroma with tasting notes of dark cherry, sweet plum, marzipan and fresh Sicilian almond cream. This tea pairs well with rich foods and all types of sweet desserts.
