The 1000 Day Flower Artisan Tea has a slightly dry character with floral notes -- lightly toasty green grassiness with a hint of sweet caramel sugar are sprinkled on the finish. The tea is best brewed in a glass pot so you can watch the tight ball of tea unfurl, revealing full leaves and the beautiful flower.
Traditional Chinese medicine maintains that the flower is beneficial for the liver, is effective for reducing body heat and can brighten the eyes. So not only does this tea taste fabulous, when you combine those qualities with the overall health benefits of green tea with its antioxidants, vitamin C and flavonoids, it’s also good for you!
