tandtlogoWhite Mix Holiday, by Tea & Tea, is a refreshing mix of Pai Mu Tan (white peony) tea, sencha, cornflower blossoms, rose petals, elderflower, and lemongrass. The green tea leaves with specks
of blue cornflower smell very floral and grassy. I could definitely detect the rose petals and sencha in the aroma. I steeped 1 teaspoon of tea in 1 cup of water for 5 minutes. The water was at about 170 degrees F and turned a lovely pale green. As the tea steeped, the smell became more vegetal and I could detect more of the Pai Mu Tan. Pai Mu Tan is also called Bai Mudan which literally means “white peony” in Chinese. Bai Mudan white peony tea is a stronger, more potent white tea and is often preferred for these qualities. I also find Bai Mudan to be more fruity than other white teas.

Despite containing some fuller bodied teas like Pai Mu Tan and Sencha, this tea is very light and surprisingly sweet. It is floral, grassy, and very fruity due to the Pai Mu Tan. I can taste a lot of the rose petals and a bit of the lemongrass. It also has some hay-like flavors from the Sencha. I often find that sencha leaves a bitter aftertaste in my mouth and I sadly found that to be the case with this tea.

Though this blend wasn’t my favorite of Tea & Tea’s, it was sweet and simple. I also had it chilled and I think I prefer it this way. When cold, the fruity notes seem to emerge beautifully. It would be a great iced tea for a warm spring day. Also, this tea has some wonderful health benefits. Pai Mu Tan and Sencha contain antioxidants. Rose petals and elderflowers contain vitamin C. Lemongrass is often good for headache relief.
