Jasmine Peach Bai Mudan
Origin: Organic white tea, organic osthmanthus flowers, organic jasmine flowers, natural peach flavor and natural essential oils of orange and tangerine blended in the U.S.
Flavor Profile: Consummately floral, with notes of fresh citrus, white peach, white pepper, toasted amaranth and a trace of fresh blueberries.
Tea Story: This fragrant and flavorful twist on the classic leaf-and-bud white tea is a beguilingly sweet breakfast or dessert tea. A super-perfumey nose, decadently fruity facets and a bubble-gum-sweet finish recall a really big, full California chardonnay, and a cooling finish provides a mouth-feel reminiscent of fresh mint. Unlike most flavored white teas, this one is organic and totally natural; its bounteous flavors come from a skillful, summery blend of organic white tea, osmanthus blossoms, jasmine flowers and natural peach, orange and tangerine essences.
Samovarian Poetry: Profusely perfumed. Fantastically floral. Saturated with stonefruit. Decadently delicious.
Food Pairings: For breakfast, pair Jasmine Peach Bai Mudan with salted-butter-topped oatmeal pancakes, Samovar’s ginger-quinoa waffles or Camembert on a toasted baguette. For dessert, partner it with white chocolate mousse, panna cotta or white-wine-poached pears with cinnamon mascarpone.
