From Shanti Tea

A well-balanced combination of Chinese Sencha, osmanthus petals and peach essences. It tastes like outdoors in the spring! The sweet flavours of peach and floral notes from osmanthus are exceptionally matched with the grassy, lightly vegetal taste of Sencha. Each ingredient perfectly balancing out the other. This tea has slight creaminess when served hot. It really shines when served as iced tea.

Ingredients: Organic green tea, organic osmanthus petals, natural essences

(note copied from Peach Osmanthus by New Moon Tea Co.)

So I recently subscribed to Bokksu, a Japanese snack subscription box. I’ve been doing some casual short little reviews of the snacks on Instagram, and for the last few I’ve been pairing them with teas. This is the tea I chose to have with an absolutely scrumptious white peach castella cake.

Honestly though, this one’s just not great. There’s barely any peach or osmanthus at all. Mostly I taste the generic Chinese sencha base, with its dry grass notes. There’s no bitterness at least, but there’s not much else either…

So, a bit of a rant. I’m having a really hard time with New Moon Tea Co lately. I noticed that this and one of their other new Spring teas – White Strawberry – are very obviously sourced from Shanti Tea. And while I get that a lot of places resell blends from wholesale sources, the packaging states these are “small batch, hand blended, farm to cup teas” and that this is “proudly made in British Columbia, Canada”… Which is clearly a load of crap when it comes to these two teas, and I assume many others.

This is a brand that I’ve been so happy to support in the past, but now I have to wonder how many of the teas are falsely advertised like this. I don’t know whether to (tactfully) bring this up to the owner, or just stop buying from her entirely…

Have any of you have this issue before…?
