This tea is inventive and different. I enjoy it very much. It’s a delicate white peony with lots of coconut that gives it some milkiness, and also cardamom pods. Cardamom, in my opinion, is a great spice that is drastically underutilized. It is spicy like cinnamon but refreshing like mint. I’m a fan.

We tried this tea on a night we had a huge spread on the balcony from City Barbeque. Pulled pork, brisket, green beans, cornbread, the works. This tea is great with food. I might go so far as to say it might be best with food. It is great as a complement to desserts as well. The cardamom accents so many flavors perfectly.

We found it to be good for three resteeps. At first I steeped at 176F because I like my whites steeped at low temperature, but I’ve found the cardamom really comes through a little higher, maybe 195F.

EDIT: Just had this one again. Drink it cold. 100%. Or iced. All the flavors are out and balanced when it’s cold. Really excellent. Cold and with food, seriously.

Flavors: Cardamon, Milk

Bio

I live in NC with my Irish husband and our two furbabies, Olaf the Hedgehog and his little brother Hugo the Peekapoo. I’m a microbiologist but mostly I love to travel.

My mom is the tea guru ashmanra. I have an uneducated interest in tea. I began drinking green tea a few years ago to be healthy and have developed a taste for matcha, white, puerh, and some black. My go-to is Stash White Christmas which I drink in amounts that should probably be studied long-term. Stash should probably be sponsoring me. (except they just discontinued White Christmas and were rude when I contacted them about it…. Never mind about Stash, they are canceled)
