An elegant white tea boasting the exquisite flavour of Chinese Pai Mu Tan and containing live cultures of 'friendly' bacteria. Absolutely ideal first thing in the morning, directly after exercise or as an accompaniment to your evening meal.  

Superior Golden Yunnan, to give it its full name, is full of malty zestiness with a delectable aromatic edge. Perfect while on the go, during strenuous activity or drink half a bottle (125ml) before and after exercise - though we defy anyone who can resist consuming a bottle in one go!

  1. Sounds good for CNY or any time!

  2. Ah but there was rationing in Canada but nothing like it was in Britain. Ration books came out near the end of the war - over two weeks they could have 4lbs meat, 2lbs butter, one sugar, one jam and one tea or coffee. My father in law was an RAF pilot from Wales. His fist memory of Moncton was marching from the train station past a diner where he and his buddies smelled bacon and eggs and it nearly drove them round the bend. As soon as they were settled in and allowed off base, every one of then hightailed it back to the diner! We had rationing so that we could send food to feed Britain.

  3. Yes, my mother told me about the rationing in Canada when she was a girl. It didn't last as long as it did over here though. Over here there was still rationing up until the mid 1950's!

    Mom was lucky her grandparent's were farmers, so they always had plenty to eat.
