This is the first tea we received from 2021! The delicate white blossoms are harvested in early January from majestic plum trees that are around 60 years old. The trees are left to grow on their own, with minimal human intervention all year round. No sprays are used. The blossoms are dried naturally on bamboo trays, without the use of sulphites or bleach.
Traditionally, plum blossoms are treasured for their medicinal benefits - it calms the liver and stomach, and clears heat and dryness.
Soothing and calming, it is nutty and savory, with pronounced notes of almond.
Only 1 to 2 grams are needed per serving. Each serving will make around 2 to 3 cups of tea. Enjoy as is, or sweeten slightly with honey.
