According to Greek mythology, the Elysiun Fields is a heavenly paradise where the immortals reside. Furthermore, it was believed that the aroma of the Gardenia Flower could serve as a way to transport you there!
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Gardenia has been used for thousands of years to help cool the body, and calm the mind. Across the globe, Gardenia's are made into perfumes and can be found in a wide variety of floral arrangements.
No matter how you look at it, the Gardenia flower is something special, and so is this tea.
This tea comes to us from the same incredible garden in Taiwan as our Princess Jasmine, and like that tea there are no chemicals or artificial flavors added. Just the tea and the flowers.
Truly a unique and incredible brew, this Gardenia Flower Oolong is a special treat. Brew yourself a cup and take a journey to your own personal paradise!
