The bag is very loosely filled, with 50 g of tea taking more place than any black blend I’ve had. However this probably prevents the leaves from being crushed, as they are rather big.
Mixed with the white tea, are some chamomile flowers (the whole full and still yellow flower bud), as well as lavender flowers petals (if this is indeed considered a petal, no stem included anyway).
The brew is very light, almost colorless.
Its smell is flowery, without being sweltering, and mixes different flower flavors.
The tea tastes very delicate, though not bland.
The first two teapots I did were too strong on chamomile, as I felt it covered all the other flavors. I’ve been careful to put back a few flowers in the bag for my last brew and the balance was perfect, the flowers bringing flavors to the tea without turning it into “just another” herbal tea.
A very pleasant drinking experience, rather relaxing indeed as a result from the soft flowery flavors.
Gentle white tea, lavendar flowers, lemongrass and Chamomile flowers blended together to maximise their traditional soothing properties. A favourite across the Yumchaa team for unwinding at the end of the day as well as a top favourite gift, given to our mums (and dads) for all special occasions.
Ingredients: Pai Mu Tan, Lavender, Egyptian camomile flowers and Lemongrass.
