White Persian Melon Golden Moon Tea Review and Giveaway

>> Tuesday, April 20, 2010

Today I doing a review and giveaway for Golden Moon Tea. I discovered Golden Moon Tea a few months ago when I decided to only purchase loose leaf tea. I made this decision to reduce waste after reading that "one million tons of excess waste could be eliminated each year by not having the following three items associated with an average tea bag: the paper wrapping around the individual bag, the string attached to the bag, and the little paper tab attached to the string." (source, http://www.culinate.com/articles/sift/Tea+baggage). So this review and giveaway are perfect for the Earth Day Blogging Event that I am a part of!

Golden Moon Tea focuses on "providing a limited number of highest quality unique specialty teas...All Golden Moon Teas are hand-plucked and meticulously crafted to enhance leaf character, aroma, color, clarity, body, complexity, and above all, flavor." Your enjoyment is guaranteed or your money back!

I find that white tea is probably the least used tea by people I know. Many have never even heard of it. White tea is VERY low in caffeine and according to about.com, "Leaving tea leaves so close to their natural state means that white tea contains more polyphenols, the powerful anti-oxidant that fights and kills cancer-causing cells, than any other type of tea." Uncured, unfermented and plucked before fully open, white tea became the only tea served inside the palace of China's emperor, and its gentle purity inspired the Japanese tea ceremony. Rarer, more subtle, and higher in beneficial antioxidants, white teas are still the tea art's highest form.

I tried White Persian Melon which is a white loose leaf tea enlivened with the nectar of succulent melon. This luxurious delicacy is light, subtle and yummy. No grassy flavor and not overwhelming with melon flavor. It was great both hot and iced- lightly fruity. I especially enjoyed it with a bit of honey.

Buy some today or win it!
