Tasting Notes: Normally, I’m not one that is affected by caffeine when it comes to sleep time so you may find me drinking any type of tea before bed. This organic lavender white tea uses Bai Mu Dan (also can be known as Pai Mu Tan or White Peony) blended with the perfect flower company, lavender. Lavender is known quite well for its soothing qualities so it only makes sense that this would be a great tea for night time, even with its caffeine levels. The delicate tea is naturally sweet with the soft fruit notes that remind me of ripe melon which definitely takes me back to summer time. I often find that Bai Mu Dan has a floral aroma and taste on its own, so it was interesting to have this blended with lavender buds especially since it is one of the smoothest and most soothing white teas. Even with the addition of the lavender buds, this lavender white tea also stands up to re-steeping very well. With multiple re-steeps, the vegetal flavours lighten up, however fruity and even nutty notes linger.
