I was never a fan of scented teas until I tried this white tea from Shang. Pao Blossom is probably the best floral scent and taste that I have experienced. Shang makes this using his silver needle king grade leaves and the pao blossom is allowed to infuse into the leaves about 3-4 times over the course of the tea making process.

I’m curious, what are pao blossoms?

pao blossoms are a relative of grapefruit and are produced only one place in the world. I’ll email Shang and see if I can get more information for you, but you really can’t find any information about it on the internet.

I know, I tried Googling them and didn’t get much. The closest I got was ‘Kung Pao Chicken’, lol!

Bio

I began my tea adventure when a counselor at Spanish camp introduced me to yerba mate. From there I soon started to embrace all different kinds of tea.

Currently my favorite tea is dragonwell, with silver needles being a close second. I really enjoy trying new teas and experimenting with different steep times and temperatures,
