Origin: Tea from Yunnan, China; Organic Blood Orange and Ginger from United States
Flavor Profile: Dark, wet, redwood forest earth with a thick, stewed orange, citrus depth. Rich, smooth, and earthy.
Tea Story: The deep, crimson flavor of blood orange is deliciously (if not surprisingly!) coupled with the earthy, malty depth of ripe Yunnan Pu-erh. When Christine sampled this tea out at an art opening, guests were telling her, “I feel amazing! What did you put in the tea?!” She just smiled and explained that they were just feeling the pu-erh high.
Samovarian Poetry: Blood Orange adroitly blended with our classic loose leaf pu-erh yields notes of citrus, spice and earth in this complex brew!
Food Pairing: Chocolate fondue: dipped strawberries, blood orange segments, and banana slices. Any deserts that pair the dark rich, sweet chocolate flavors, with the mild acids and sweetness of fruits.
Samovar's is dedicated to preserving the simplicity and integrity of the tea traditions and inspiring people to practice peace through drinking tea.
