This was (our wholesale manager/event coordinator/tea goddess) Jessica's lovely inspiration.

The creamy richness of the bai mudan white tea creates a solid platform for our incredibly aromatic lavender flowers.

A well-balanced white tea that is as evocative as it is soothing.

No flavorings at all with this one, just white tea and lavender.

Light, refreshing, simple. Holds up to multiple steepings.

    Perfectly Subtle. Most lavender teas I've found have been totally overwhelmed with fake lavender flavor. I don't want my tea to taste like soda fountain syrup! Well, this one gets it right with just pure natural lavender blossoms, and it comes across in the flavor. The delicate white tea base lingers while the aromatic lavender takes the lead, creating a perfect tea experience. Well done!

    This tea tasted wonderful both hot and cold. I like that this tea--especially the first steeping--doesn't leave me feeling thirsty like some teas do. I love lavender in teas, so I looked forward to trying this one. Just opening the pouch fills the air with a vibrant lavender smell. The lavender flavors the tea without overwhelming the taste of the white tea. They blend very nicely to create a smooth, relaxing, and refreshing white tea. This is my favorite Zhi white tea.

    My granddaughter bought me a tin of the lady lavender tea and a sample of the vanilla honeybush tea for my birthday and I am beyond impressed. The heavenly aroma of the lavender fills my home with a floral essence and tastes as wonderful as it smells. I have been impressed by Zhi Tea's newest blends, calming and comforting.

Hint: Getting the water temperature just right on this is worth it.

Water: 185°F | Leaves: 2 heaping tsp per 10 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 Rose contains just the right amount of organic lavender to create a truly delightful tea. Throughout history, lavender has been known to provide a calm, soothing effect and is great on skin.

The base for our White Lavender is the Oothu Estate White Peony. 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.
