The flavor of pomegranate is the featured artist in this hand-crafted blend of our top-grade Indian Oothu Estate White Bai Mudan - that also contains Vitamin C-rich rose hips!

Nectafarious and rich, the chocolate-y overtones of the tea combine effortlessly with the sweet-tartness of the pomegranate flavor.

Great for multiple steepings.

Simply lovely.

    Bought this from a nice gent at an event in Austin. Glad I did. It is as good or better steeped at home than the great sample you dished out.

    Special. Very delicate with beautiful multi-colured leaves. I like that the tea comes from India. Feels safer somehow. Anyway, a nice tea.

    Good! Great!

Hint: Use more leaves for a stronger, more satisfying taste.

Water: 195°F | Leaves: 1 heaping Tbsp per 12 ounce cup | Infusion Time: 3-4 minutes

Basic Steeping Tips
- Use filtered or spring water, whenever possible
- Don’t overboil water
- Remove leaves after recommended time (adjust to taste)
- If you want stronger tea, use more leaves instead of steeping for a longer time
Leaves can be resteeped 2-3 times resulting in various flavor differences. Don’t throw out those leaves until they have given it all up!
White tea is sun dried and contains a high amount of antioxidants. Low in caffeine. Heart healthy and has known cancer halting properties.
Our White Pomegranate contains the flavor of the exotic pomegranate fruit. Pomegranates are rich in antioxidants (polyphenols, tannins, and anthocyanins) that can keep bad LDL cholesterol from oxidizing, which prevents the initial steps of atherosclerosis. Pomegranate can also keep blood platelets from clumping together to form unwanted clots. All in all, this exotic fruit provides several health benefits that add on to those of white tea.

The base for our White Pomegranate is the White Peony tea, also known as Bai Mudan and Pai Mutan. Hailing from the Fuding Country in Fujian Province, the White Peony tea is one of the top ten most famous teas in China. White Peony is made from the buds and leaves of the great white tea plant, leftover after the Silver Needle white tea has been harvested. The leaves are left to dry naturally in the sun and then baked for a short period of time to bring out all the flavor.

Like a flower, the silvery bud is enfolded by green leaves. When steeped, the green leaves unfold and become resembling of a blossoming peony flower, hence the name “White Peony Tea”.

Legend has it that the White Peony tea was discovered by a prefecture chief named Mao Yi during the Han Dynasty. He was an honest man who was disgusted by the corruption around him, so he quit his job and moved to a remote mountain to live with his mother in reclusion. During the harsh winter, Mao Yi’s mother fell sick. Thus, Mao Yi began his search far and wide to find a medicine to cure his mother. One night, a grey-headed immortal came to him in a dream and disclosed that his mother’s illness could be cured by a carp boiled with a new type of tea. Mao Yi broke the ice of the lake to jump in and catch a carp. However, he was stumbled as to how he was going to find a new tea, especially in the winter. Suddenly, 18 peonies in front of him turned into tea plants, with buds coming out like white peonies. Mao Yi picked the buds, headed home and cooked them with the carp. With this concoction, his mother was healed.
