From Tealeaves

With its hint of flowery notes, this tea balances Yunnan’s malty character with the floral overtones of jasmine and Ceylon.

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of your day and transport yourself to a place of serenity by making a pot of our Garden Party Tea. This beautiful blend features a full-bodied palate with a floral finish, and its natural sweetness carries the air of the grace you’d find in any garden party, creating a blooming atmosphere wherever you go.

Our Yunnan black tea is combined with a hint of the heady scent of jasmine – a historical specialty of the northern Fujian province since the Ming Dynasty. Here, the base tea is made from fresh leaves plucked during the spring season. After this has been done, it is kept in cool storage until the arrival of jasmine flowers in the summertime, used to scent the most delicate of teas.

Yunnan Black Teas are lush, thirst-quenching treats. Known to locals as dayeh, the leaves are a golden colour before and after brewing. As these teas are made from old-growth trees instead of bushes and are left to grow naturally in the jungle and forests, the leaves are generally large and intact even after being infused, creating a creamy and malty tea with almost no bite.

Okay, this doesn’t count against me for my July hiatus since my mother bought it. :)

This is very nice. Scent is very jasmine but a sweet jasmine, if that makes any sense. Sometimes the jasmine scent in tea is a sharp floral, but this one is not. If I were to guess at why I’d say that the Yunnan part of the base is softening it. There is mild malt in the background but it all melds very nicely together. Not in the least bit astringent or bitter, though I did watch the time pretty closely because of the presence of the Ceylon.

This will be a pleasant tin to get through.

Sounds good, but my goodness their tea is expensive! :(

It does take a big gulp to buy from them. Per ounce (at least for the ones we got) it isn’t any more expensive than say Butiki but they only offer the 3.5 oz tin option. I wish they’d offer tinless refills and smaller amounts.

Unfortunately Mom & I got hooked on their Eros blend when having tea at Disneyworld a few years ago. So when we are out of that, we try to find other things to try as well. Maybe 1 order per year or so. :) And let me know when you are down on your samples, I’d be happy to share some of their teas. :)

Lol, I don’t need more tea you crazy! :P
