Contains high antioxidant level of 7.5-9.5% vs 5-6% for mass-market teas.
Character: Smooth with Madagascar vanilla notes and a touch of grenadine pungency. Sweet pecan-like finish. A mixture of grenadine and vanilla, a flavor combo we've grown enamored with and have come to call Monk's blend in honor of the monastic traditions experimenting with herbs, spices and fruit. In this variation of tea we've added our all-natural flavoring to a superb white Pai mu tan from Fujian province in China. The resulting cup exhibits a full body drawn out with underlying notes of vanilla hinting at cream and round touches of pomegranate. Brew a pot today, and savor the delicate aromas.
