Camellia Blossom White Tea | 山茶花貢眉白茶

Tasting notes: Herbaceous, sweet, dried apricot

Exclusively available to our teaCLUB members, this is a unique blend of Gong Mei White Tea with blossoms from the Camellia sinensis tea plant itself. The flowers enhance the fruitiness of the white tea, giving it a balanced sweet flavour—the perfect refresher at any time of the day, hot or cold-brewed!

What is Gone Mei White Tea?
Gong Mei (貢眉) is the third grade of white tea (after Silver Needle 白毫銀針 and White Peony 白牡丹), comprising mostly large leaves with a few thin buds. This Gong Mei is aged a year already, and its autumn-brown leaves yield an amber liquor with an earthy, forest-y flavour and a sweet aftertaste.

We source our Camellia Blossoms from a small cooperative in Assam, India. The cooperative helps sustain the livelihood of a group of local tea farmers, each with their own small organic tea garden. The flowers are gently hand picked and lightly dried in the sun.

The Camellia sinensis tea plant blossoms for 2 months every year, in autumn. Its white and orange flowers are known for their high polyphenolic content, providing anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and cholesterol-lowering effects. Brewed on their own, the flowers yield a bright orange liquor with a mellow, fruity taste and subtle sweetness.
