If you have friends that are afraid to branch out into green teas, but their doctors and health advisors have been urging them to try - I have a lovely green tea blend just for them. It's called White Light White Heat. The base is organic white peony tea and Maofeng green tea combined with cranberries, rosehips, hibiscus, orange and a hint of cinnamon. Unlike so many "holiday" blends, this one is light and clean and not over-flavored with fruits and spices. The delicate flavors of the tea leaves are the first notes you taste, followed by a light fruitiness and a very subtle taste of cinnamon. It's refined in flavor and will convert your friends trying to get on the green tea bandwagon. More and more studies are proving the benefits of this magical plant. Get your holiday orders in by 12.19.14 so they arrive on time.
Clear, clean and pure green tea. I started my T Project tea day with this lovely Anji Bai Cha tea I found on a trip this summer. Long silver needles that are sweet in the mouth and long on the finish. Made in a lovely glass gaiwan, available at the T Project webshop, it holds a concentrated amount of tea leaves for a quick infusion, over and over again. If you don't have a gaiwan, you are missing out in this lovely experience of tasting your tea leaves in a concentrated manner. I always feel so revived after sipping green teas. Heaven!
