Volcanic White Peony
The beauty of Bali is mirrored in this White Peony tea. Grown at the footsteps of a volcano and Bali’s most spiritual mountain, Mt Agung. Surrounded by rice fields and temples on UNESCO World Heritage protected lands. The rich volcanic soil makes this tea’s nutritional content potent and the many temples that surround the organic, biodiverse tea farm adds to its energy. Not to mention the tea farmer plays spiritual music to his plants.
You can feel the tranquil energy of Balinese culture transcend on you as you sip this white tea. It’s soft floral, honey aroma is quite different to the velvety, subtle bittersweet taste. Leaving you feeling elevated and grounded. Not to mention this tea is high in antioxidants, volcanic soil trace minerals, and flavonoids making this tea especially good to reduce anxiety, improve heart health and digestion. We love drinking this tea for an afternoon pick me up, before a creative session, or to share at a social gathering.
