A cozy winter rendition of our popular Eight Treasures tea with juniper and vanilla notes. . . .
Our original Eight Treasure Yabao was such a hit that we had to take the opportunity to blend up a cozy, warm, winter version to pair with the cold weather season. The name “Eight Treasures” comes from our original blend inspiration, a traditional Chinese herbal tea called Eight Treasures that our friends in the tea market would give us whenever we were feeling under the weather.
Our Eight Treasure tea is a celebration of the complex, sweet, sparkling, piney notes of Yabao, a sun-dried wild arbor budset tea that gets better with age. To bring out the natural piney notes in this tea we added juniper berries and holy basil. The citrus sparkle is extended with lemon peel and elderberry, while the whole blend is made thicker and richer by whole vanilla bean, sun-dried Yunnan green jasmine, and burdock root.
This blend evokes the cozy feeling of coming in out of the snow and sitting by the fire with its redwood and juniper flavors, made all the more intriguing by an almost candy-like grape taste bolstered by creamy vanilla.
