Tea Story

Pomegranates are very high in Vitamin C, polyphenols and antioxidants and because of their incredible flavor play a large role in the culinary traditions of the country. A widely known fact is that Madasgascar is the 4th largest island in the world – a lesser known fact is that the island is the worlds largest exporter of Vanilla. So, what do we have? We have pomegranate and vanilla, a couple of incredible flavors that together offer a melange that is at once light and juicy and full of rich depth. So, how did these flavors from the north and south come together in the first place? While there are no written records describing the first time the two ingredients were introduced to one another, it is almost certain to have happened at the hands of a French chef. Both countries, Algeria from 1830 – 1962 and Madaspgascar from 1896 – 1960, were at one time colonies of France. As sycamore there was much interaction between the two. In fact,it is entirely possible that the first blending occurred in 1896, the very year France annexed Madagascar, (Immediately after France took possession of the island, Madagascar's a royal family was moved to Algeria, bringing their cooks with them.) How did these two flavors, united by the French, come to be blended with a delicately textured Pai Mu Tan white tea from Fujian, China? For that fateful occurrence you can thank our Master Blender who knows a great flavor combo when he sees, smells or tastes one. The resulting cup, Pomegranate Madagascar is a fabulous bond to offer customers who want the health benefits of white tea and the bright flavors of herb and fruit blends. A spectacular white!
