At Home Tea Flights - April 2021 - Taste of Spring

Celebrate spring by exploring three teas that remind us of spring. This flight set includes sample sizes of:

 

  • Cherry Blossom White: Evocative of the delicate beauty of spring, this blend enhances the natural floral flavors of our Chinese white tea base with rose buds, cherry, and safflower. Sweet and lightly refreshing.

  • Wen Shan (Bao Zhong) Oolong: A delicate beauty out of Taiwan, this twisted-style oolong’s light oxidation levels produce a pale cream liquor with milky floral notes and a lingering fruit finish.

  • Yunnan Sunrise: An exquisite offering out of China, Yunnan Sunrise (also known as Dian Hong or Yunnan Gold) features beautiful long leaf buds with a brilliant gold color. Complex, woody, earthy, and mellow – a wonderful way to start the day!

     

Our at home tea flight is a way for you to sample new teas and practice identifying flavors and mouth-feels. We have included a tasting card with a flavor pinwheel for you to use in your sampling to improve and practice your capability to identify flavors.

April 2021 At Home Flight - A Taste of Spring (03:08)
Spring is fresh, floral and light. It is the blooming of flowers and trees and the regrowth of many plants. This flight is our representation of spring in teas. There are a couple of connoisseur teas in this flight, so don't forget to pull out a tasting wheel to help you identify the complex flavors in these teas. We start this flight with Cherry Blossom White. Our representation of the famous Cherry trees given to the United States from Japan that bloom every spring in Washington, DC. This tea is a mix of Bai Mu Dan tea from China with rose petals, cherry and safflower. Next is Wen Shan Bao Zhong Oolong. This is a lightly oxidized oolong from Taiwan. This oolong also goes by the name Pouchong oolong. The twisted leaves are made by laying out the leaves on rice paper and then twisting the rice paper to twist the leaves. It is a creamy, floral oolong with a soft finish. Finally there is Yunnan Sunrise. This is a partially oxidized black tea from the Yunnan province of China. These long leaves are beautifully golden in flavor and produce a malty, wheat finish that is smooth.
