Wild Rose Bai Mudan
Origin: Organic white tea, organic roses and natural essential rose oil blended in the U.S.
Flavor Profile: Ethereal and wildly floral with an earthly, earthy base.
Tea Story: There is a long history of flavoring and scenting teas in China. While Jasmine Pearls and Earl Grey are the most famous of the scented teas originating in China, other classic flavor enhancers include osmanthus, lychee and, of course, rose. These styles of tea are incredibly popular in North China and are becoming increasingly popular with American tea drinkers today.
Our Wild Rose Bai Mudan is a gorgeous blend of leaf-and-bud white tea and hot pink rosettes. The dry leaf has exquisite aromas of rose water and crushed rose petals with a whisper of loam. Scents of cut roses and damp hay enhance the brew. A top note of citrus hovers on the palate, but overall, the taste of Wild Rose Bai Mudan is a heavenly interplay of the field and the forest. Rose, damp hay and a touch of osmanthus pepperiness are complemented by wet wood and loam. A hefty, rounded mouth-feel is followed by a slightly drying aftertaste of dried roses and dried grasses.
Samovarian Poetry: A balance of the ethereal and the earthly cleanses and lifts the mind as it soothes, calms and grounds the body.
Food Pairings: Pair Wild Rose Bai Mudan as you would rose petals. Try it with lightly spiced Somali lamb, ginger sugar cookies, vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese icing and chopped almonds, Harvey Wallbanger bundt cake or almond-stuffed dates with mint essential oil and Manchego cheese.
